| Apollo-Team: Delay of Vampire V4, Vampire 600 V2.1 being produced|
Under the title link the Apollo team has announced that the release of the FPGA accelerator board Apollo V4 continues to be delayed. A single bug makes it necessary to rewrite an important part of the core. The team wrote: "Hundreds of hours have been spent on it to determine why the heck the Vampire V4 does work well on some Amiga 500 boards and not on others (despite same chips revisions). Team measured everything that could be measured (if you mind, majsta has the biggest thing we could measure) and crosschecked with all Altera manuals, and could not find a single hardware issue...the Amiga 500 is a real timing inferno. Most of us agrees that understanding women is easier than talking to an Amiga 500 chipset."
Igor 'Majsta' Majstorovic has started again the production of the Vampire 600. Some hardware components have been improved in V2.1, e.g. "better power circuitry, better caps, better socket, better cigarette smell, etc". (snx) (Translation: dr)
