Amiga A600 Vampire II Update - SAGA Driver, and it's FAST!

As many of you well know, the Vampire II for the A600 has been out a little while now and there isn't one person I have personally spoken to that is disappointed with it. In fact it is so fast, that some have rushed to Facebook and showed benchmarks as bragging rights against the much older accelerators that even for their time were rather fast. Well today we've got another video for you from Modern Vintage Gamer, and this one is showing the Amiga A600 Vampire II through HDMI using the SAGA driver and playing work in progress ports such as Rise of the Triad and Duke Nukem. Let me just tell you, this is probably the best footage yet showing just how fast these games are running, something unheard of in its Amiga life time.

The ' Vampire 600 V2 ', a powerhouse of technical marvel by Igor Majstorovic, (Majsta). and tcore (CPU) by Gunnar von Boehn, (BigGun) that is faster than an Amiga 1200 with a 68060 accelerator running at 80MHz with very little heat or power consumption all for the low price of €150!
