Die V4 is equipped with the well-known 68080 processor core as well as provides the AGA-compatible "SAGA" chipset.

  • FPGA : Altera Cyclone V A5 (77k LE, 28nm technology)
  • RAM : 512MB DDR3 (up to 1GB/s)
  • FastIDE with 40- and 44-pin connectors
  • Digital Video-out up to 720p@60Hz
  • Dual-Kickstart-flashrom (for safety)
  • MicroSD storage
  • Vampire V4 is CE, WEEE and RoHS compliant

Motherboard components:
  1. IO Header #1
  2. IO Header #2
  3. IO Header #3
  4. Ethernet
  5. USB
  6. USB
  7. DB9 (standalone only)
  8. DB9 (standalone only)
  9. FastIDE 40-pin
  10. FastIDE 44-pin
  11. FPGA
  12. Digital Video Amplifier
  13. Digital Video Output
  14. DDR3 RAM
  15. JTAG Header
  16. MicroSD-Slot
  17. MicroUSB power (standalone only)
THe V4 is supposed to be available in the fourth quarter of 2017. The price has not yet been set but users were pointed out that the improved specifications implies a higher price. If you have preordered one of the previous models of the Vampire and still did not get it, you can change your order to a V4 by paying the difference. (cg) (Translation: dr)
