Amitopia Amiga Magazine knows from earlier experiences with MacMini G4 and MorphOS what specifications you need to be able to use several screens in 1920×1080. With 32MB VRAM you can open 2-3 MUI screens, while with 64MB and up you can have more. You can adjust as much VRAM mem that you need in the Picasso96 compatible graphics card driver.

AGA Amiga usage is fun, but AmigaOS got RTG support for a very long time now. With a graphics card, you can have a beautiful background picture, browse the web or draw images with millions of colors without thinking of Chip RAM.
Also, you can watch high resolution images on the desktop, render 3D images faster, and also use AmigaOS extensions such as Dopus Magellan 5.82 in a better way too. The possibilities become even bigger with Warp1260 and also most of the Amiga applications, games, and demoscene productions will benefit from the speeds you will get with a 68060 CPU.
Warp1260 will be a nice alternative to the new Vampire 68080 FPGA accelerators from Apollo Team. It offers different upgrades. It is amazing to see Classic Amiga getting so much love and Amitopia Amiga Magazine will support them a lot.
