Now we have AmigaOS 3.1.4 and today Pedro Cotter showing of a working Vampire V4 Standalone card working for the very first time!
Vampire V4 Standalone will drive Amiga 68k to new heights
AmigaOS 4.x and MorphOS 3.x have done a lot for the Amiga community, trying to convince people to change to PowerPC. Many Amiga users did change, but most of the Amiga marked is still on the 68k side. This is also something that Hyperion Entertainment knows by releasing AmigaOS 3.1.4 for classic Amiga.
Back in time, at the superb Amiga meeting Amiga32 in Neuss, Amitopia got to see Vampire V4 standalone prototype motherboard for the first on display. It wasn’t working, but you could take pictures of it. Now, almost one year later. Pedro Cotter unveils a video of Vampire V4 Standalone that is showing that it is now finally working and also inform the Amiga community that this new Vampire V4 Standalone is a Amiga Reborn product!
