Shipping of ZZ9000 for Zorro 2 and Zorro 3 Amiga home computers is anticipated for the end of October 2018. It is fantastic to see that there are new products coming out for the Zorro slots still. A nice bonus is that this RTG card got a Ethernet interface, which will make this buy a very good one.
