The first batch of this FPGA graphics card for Amiga 2000, Amiga 3000 and Amiga 4000 computers is such an hit that a Batch 2 is now confirmed to be produced in February! 100 cards will be built and sent to the ones that have ordered the product!
The VA2000 is a FPGA based graphics card for Amiga 2000/3000/4000 computers featuring high resolutions and color depth over DVI-D/HDMI. It has a hacker-friendly expansion header for upgrades and custom mods and features a slot for MicroSD cards that can be mounted in AmigaOS.
