The Apollo CPU is a modern CISC CPU design.
What is it ?
Apollo is an affordable accelerator board product line for 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 at time. It also brings Amiga Classic near to Amiga NG by bringing video through HDMI with millions of colours.
Is that real ?
Yes ! Vampire has been (and is still) under development for years by talented and passionated people. Today, they are bringing the Amiga Classic community the accelerator they deserve.Detailed datasheet
