The same team that has brought to you the FPGA Vampire 600 v2 card, is now moving onto Amiga 500 and Amiga 1200. Vampire 500 v2 is now out and can be bought thru Ebay, while the Amiga 1200 version of the card is still under production. In this Launch video below, Igor Majstorovic – Majsta explains about the Amiga 500 and Amiga 1200 versions of the Vampire cards that revolutionize the Amiga marked by bringing much cheaper accelerator cards to this classic but loved Amiga machine from Commodore. The Amiga 500 version can also be used in Amiga 1000, Amiga 2000, and in Amiga CDTV with some tweaks.
