| Graphic card: Picasso II+ clone "Matzes-GraKa" available|
For quite some time, Matthias "Matze" Heinrichs has been working on clone of the Picasso II+. Now in the Kryoflux store such a graphic card can be bought. Matzes-Graka has the same performance like the original card - a Cirrus GD5434 graphic chip with 2 MB RAM is also used - but is "about 25% faster than a Picasso II+ in an A2000 with A2630 accelerator board".
The card also can be used in an Amiga 500 - after soldering the expansion port connector. It has an integrated monitor switcher, which switches between Amiga and VGA signal. Matzes-GraKa consists of two parts (mainboard and slot sheet with VGA-port) which are connected with a flat ribbon cable. (cg) (Translation: dr)
