Vampire 1200 V2 accelerator board: Availability, reviews
In summer the Apollo team had announced two new accelerator boards: the FireBird (A500/A1000/A2000) and the IceDrake (A1200). Meanwhile, a third card has been added, the Apollo Kraken V4 (Amiga 3000/4000). While the latter is announced for the fourth quarter of 2022 and the Firebird is already available, the IceDrake is scheduled for release in the first quarter of 2022. It can currently be pre-ordered for 572 Euros (including fees, plus postage).

Currently available is (still) the Vampire 1200 V2: We want to give a brief overview of how the specifications of the Vampire 1200 V2 and the IceDrake differ:

                                                2x USB Port

The decision whether a potential buyer should rather wait for the IceDrake or better buy the Vampire 1200 V2 now, we do not want to take away from him, but at the end we want to give a little help in the form of a test report compilation: (dr)
