We have the vampireteam producing new systems for us and the real amigaos is updated again so the future is here.
But won't it run ports of really old games?
Seems a bit chicken and egg.
And how is it real AmigaOS? Because it runs on 68K? They can't really run an updatd AmigaOS on it as they don't have the sources. Unless OS3.1.4 has a Vampire edition the Vampire is limited to running an unlicensed AmigaOS hackjob.
That's not much encouragement for the future to me. I'd expect better OS support. And a CPU core that can surpass the 2Ghz barrier to supplant the AmigaOne series.

Well, I'm not wasting any more money on neither Vampire cards nor OS3.whatever as long as it sails under Hyperion. Neither of them are worth the hassle nor the money when I have perfectly fine 68k options that are cheaper, faster, and more reliable.
