The Apollo team is doing their best to make the FPGA Vampire card for A600 better and better. Now they have launched their “Silver7” update. Read on whats new.
The Apollo core is a FPGA-reimplementation of the m68k-series of Motorola which also provides a seperate graphic mode called SAGA. The core currently is used in the accelerator board “Vampire 600 V2”.
Among others the update “Silver7” provides tools for Mac-OS as well as the version of the Vampire for the Amiga500 which still is in development. The developers would appreciate any kind of feedback and ask you to use the IRC-channel #Apollo-Team on Freenode.
