The Amazing Vampire Effect at Amiga32

The classic Amiga lineup is something that most of us loves. Many thinks that these classic Amigas is the only real Amigas and is because of that, a reason for not getting a nextgen AmigaOne or MorphOS compatible machine. Well! With the Vampire Effect spreading across the Amigaworld. Your classic can now be transformed to a beast that is way better than Efika by Genesi for example. I was as many quite stunned about the performance of these FPGA cards for the classic Amiga’s but not just that. Read on…

All kinds of classic Amiga’s were put on a stand at Amiga32. Showing how Vampire works. How the GOLD 2.7 release is coming and how much capable it is of running AtariOS called GEM and even emulate Mac aswell as showing AGA and the RTG performances etc. The Vampire effect at the Amiga32 was hot. Especially with one of the Amiga 500 with the Vampire inserted that played musicvideos without issues.

Jeff Porter watched together with Gunnar and said that Vampire FPGA is like putting a Ferrari engine onto a Lada and it works. He was just stunned about what he saw. Gunnar explained for Jeff Porter that he have always been into AmigaOS and explained how great AmigaOS is because it lets you control every bits and bytes of the hardware it is running on. Jeff aggreeded on that. It was really fun to see how much positive impression the Apollo Team gave Jeff Porter at the event, which walked around the event with a Bomber 52 Commodore t-shirt. Which he revealed that was the nickname for the Amiga 500 before it was launched.  Impressive person and Gunnar is a fantastic Amigan keeping Apollo Team and their FPGA accelerator cards going on.
