PiStorm Adapter Out Now
This PiStorm is an adapter board that plugs into the socket for Amiga’s Motorola 68000. With the PiStorm you upgrade any OCS Amiga such as Amiga 500, Amiga 500+, and Amiga 2000 to run speeds similar to a very fast 68EC030 CPU. The specs are reaching 70 – 80 MHz.
PiStorm is designed to use a Raspberry Pi 3 A+ which functions in place of the CPU and according to Schwarz, there are plans in the works for a CM4 edition that could see a greater increase in performance. Other features provided by PiStorm are support for large amounts of RAM (up to 128MB), virtual SCSI devices, swappable Kickstart ROM images (the BIOS of an Amiga), and accelerated high-resolution graphics via the Raspberry Pi’s HDMI port.
Including PiStorm you also got heavy development with ApolloOS and Vampire. It is a bit more expensive, but for beginners it’s a nice alternative.
