@AmigaBlitter,

Wonder how it compares with Vampire SAGA?

@QuikSanz

it apparently allows for the same range of resolutions, while this card interfaces via zorro bus. vampire will be therefore magnitudes faster at the lower resolutions, while less so on the higher ones, since its rtg shares memory bus with the main cpu, and higher resolution will consume more memory throughput. i would risk an assumption that it will still be fast enbough in comparison, since even zorro3 could tranmit only around 10mb/s in practice. this is one of the main bottlenecks of an amiga system. nevertheless, this is a decent card and a very good initiative!

@QuikSanz

nice card for the big box miggies BUT this has nothing to do with the Vampire since this is only a graphics card and as we know the Vampire is an accelerator with RTG built in
