New KickStarter? Maybe with a Vampire V4 Standalone inside it would be fun!

Is the Vampire 64bit though ?. AmigaOS is not 64bit so not the best of names I feel.

I would still like to see Vampire in one of these

There is no '64-bit' designator like the '32-bit' one on the CD32s CD-drive lid. I think some artistic license with the CD64 name representing the successor to the CD32 would be tolerated IMHO!

It should be Amiga DVD64 or Amiga blu64 or dreaming even more Amiga HVD64

I think the term 'Compact Disc' is used interchangeably to describe optical discs of all forms colloquially so I'd stick with CD-64 myself.

It has a 64-bit extension to my knowledge. It also has AMMX which should be 128-bit. But real Amiga games bang the hardware so it shouldn't matter that AmigaOS is only 32-bit.

@amigang

It seems like a project of Phoenixconsoll beacuse:

1. It has a CD Rom, something other people would call outdated.
2. It could have a 64 bit RasPI 3b+ inside running 64Bit Linux with an Amiga emulator and AROS hosted.

Yes April fools sorry guys, but still I think a little unit like this might do well if market correctly and was cheap.

@Trekiej

Depends on how to approach the solution. I can imagine something like this with some UAE in an optimized Raspbian image should not cost more than a slot-in Blu-ray drive, added with the cost of buying the fastest Raspberry-clone available and some 3D-printed case. Oh and a USB-power-supply, SD-card and some controllers. I think some 200-ish Euros and loads of hours should get you close to owning it.

Raspberry pi 3 = 35
Usb slot loading drive = 15
USB hub with power & cables for pi & drive = 20 ish
microsd 8gb with Aimberry setup with cd32 emulation = 5
75

case either
3d printed and paint = Around 80 to 100 for something this size

home made wood/plastics/glue = 20 to 50 maybe

so you could do for most likly sub 100

bit more Pro made would cost 200

indieGO console is basically all based around emulated console with dvd drive he charges 300 and is making indieGO xs which is looking pretty good small similar system https://twitter.com/indieGOretro/

maybe for 400 we could make the CD64 a reality.

the indieGO is just 300 because you get an Hardware upgrade path (swapping board around christmas)

@phoenixkonsole

yes what Im saying is you could take my CD64 idea, charge maybe an extra 100 to make the custom case and you have yourself a CD64 for 400.

I am guessing that you have a 3D model.

@Trekiej

Designing and (probably) 3D-printing the case should not be too difficult when using a slot-loader optical-drive. It takes away the need for designing moving-parts (like the lid on the CD32). Even if you want some LEDs on a custom PCB should not break the bank.


Just come to think of it, the april's fool could turn into a nice idea.

In that case BD64 then. Or BR64 but in use I've only seen BD.

However discs are outdated and can be slow. Amiga RD64. 64-bit RomDisc.

LOL. Well AmigaTwo does sound like a sequel. Perhaps a prequel and the AmigaZero is in order?
