| FPGA accelerator card: Raptor 1200|
In a video interview, Gunnar von Böhn of Apollo team announces a feature-reduced variant of the FPGA accelerator card Vampire. If everything would proceed well, he expects the first cards already next month. The new card, too, would be produced by Igor Majstorovic and be distributed exclusively via the Apollo shop.
The Raptor 1200 card aims at those customers interested in the CPU implementation only, i.e. the 68080 Apollo core, while wanting to keep using the AGA chipset. Thus the new card is just a pure accelerator card with 100 MIPS and 128 MB RAM, but without RTG and HDMI, IDE or SD card support. While thus being cheaper than a Vampire card, the main cost factor, a big FPGA chip, would remain, though. (snx)
