I haven't posted in a while as I've been busy with two jobs and being a father, but I recently tried something. I installed the latest FS-UAE to emulate the Amiga on Apple's new M architecture. It's made editing video faster so I thought I'd see what it could do for emulation.

On the entry level MacBook Air, 8GB ram and 7 core GPU, I was able to get 458 times faster than an A600 from Sysinfo.

I did a video of this on my YouTube channel. Not sure if links are allowed, so if it does not show up, my channel is ordinary filmmaker and the video came out this week.

I don't cover the Amiga much, but whenever I can, I bring it up... Stills hurts how everything ended...

@A500

Primarily, I used my A1200 with Blizzard 1230/IV and my A1200T PowerTower (060,PPC, Mediator, Voodoo3, FastATA).

But when I want to copy stuff to the SD cards, I use fs-uae on my Intel 2017 iMac, set to an A1200 with a 68030.

@amipal

I wish I still had the traditional hardware like you do, but I still get the same feeling when I power the emulator on... and to get A3000 speeds or higher, I'm able to run apps as fast as I remember them and even faster.

The A1200 tower is a nice upgrade!

@A500

An A500, since I use it mostly for games. Occasionally an A1200.

Never an A4000 -- it uses too much CPU on my system.

@bison

I like using the heavy power for word processing, and other productivity apps and even music programs. I never used more than the A1200 in the past for the same reason as you, but on the M1 Mac, its much more efficient. I mostly use A1200 mode.

Running full tilt is just me imagining what an Amiga 5000 might be like ;)
