The Apollo team is happy to announce the immediate availability of the Gold 2.8 core for all Vampires 500, 500+ and 600. The Gold 2.8 core has many improvements such as improved HDMI DMA support, FPU fix, improved SDcard / SDNet and several other optimizations. 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.
