The Apollo team is happy to announce that the development of the Gold 2.8 core for all Vampires 500, 500+ and 600 is in full development. The Gold 2.8 core will have many improvements, such as improved hardware FPU handling, improved MPU (memory protection), new improved high performance memory controller, etc… The Apollo is an affordable accelerator board product line for Commodore Amiga Classic. It uses the Apollo core which is a code compatible Motorola M68K and ColdFire processor but is 3 to 4 time faster than the fastest 68060. It also brings Amiga Classic near to Amiga NG by bringing video through HDMI with millions of colours.
