Since the start of the Vampire 68080 accelerator appearances. They have been loved by most of the people in the community.

Yes, they are FPGA accelerators but Apollo Team has created a 68080 core that is very true to the 68k instructions. So true that any MacOS 68k emulators run without issues even.

I have gathered all of the questions within this topic about the Vampire V500 V2+ for the big-box Amigas.

Yes. But when this will happen. We just don’t know at this point. Once we have more information. We will post it here.

Does the Vampire V500 V2+ work with Amiga CDTV?

In the forum it is revealed that it works with Amiga CDTV. You must however forget about CD-ROM working though.

It is also important to know that Amiga CDTV will not boot untill you switch off expansion rom. This machine is not officially supported but it works somehow. It depends what you need it for.

The Amiga CDTV keyboard works with the Vampire V500 V2+ accelerator though. Which is awesome.
