TF360 Prototype: The fastest 68k Amiga CD32 ever unleashed

Youtube vlogger Ravi Abott released a new video of the TF360 Prototype made by TerribleFire. The TF360 is a very powerfull accelerator powerd by a Motorola 68060 running @70 mhz and 128MB of FASTRAM. In march 2020 Twitter user Edu_Arana also proudly announced the world’s first Commodore Amiga CD32 powered by Apollo’s team Vampire 1200 accelerator. The Amiga CD32 is a 32 bit home video game console developed and released by Commodore in september 1993. It was based on Commodore’s Advanced Graphics Architecture chipset, and is of similar specification to the Amiga 1200 computer but enhanced with the additional Akiko chip. The Amiga CD32 started very well and 100,000+ units of it were sold in Europe alone. In 1993 and 1994 it took roughly half of the total UK cd-rom market. Sadly enough, Commodore faced patent issues that prevented the CD32 from being released in the USA.  The game console offerd some great game titels such as Worms, Banshee, Flink, Guardian, Simon The Sorcerer, Jungle Strike and many more. The Amiga CD32 was also capable of running Commodore CDTV software. Pricing or release date of the TF360 are TBA…
