  It looks like you are planning to start selling the V4 at the show.

Yes of course.
The plan is to launch the V4-SA there.

@Gunnar

Will there be some ready-to-use/ready-to-buy V4-SA for the Alchimie party too ?

Just a tad bit of overscan :)

But looking good otherwise!

Looks awesome!

Are there any images of the revised PCB?

Why would you want them?
There are mostly minimal changes on it, hardly noticeable to human eye.

I got the impression it was no longer a common PCB with the A500 accelerator version is that correct?

I don't know about you...but I like my A500 to have personality trait and not become just a hosted keyboard with a case. I prefer V4 to be standalone and not an accelerator, myself.

Each to their own.

I think V2 IS THE PERFECT ACCELERATOR FOR CLASSICAL Amiga...it get to have both worlds and still keep it's personality and use it's custom chipset!

No I see the vampire as Amiga so putting more Amiga in an A500 takes nothing away from it even if parts of the old chipset are no longer used on later cores.

Call me a hardware enthusiast, but I love seeing images of circuit boards! Would love to see the latest revision if you can, and if not no worries!

Honestly I dont see much difference than people who stuff their A1200 with all kinds of daughter boards that take over the various functions of the custom chips from that machine either, eg 16 bit audio cards, Accelerators/ram, flicker fixers, USB clockport, etc..

  Think my V600 is still using R43 or something like that with the current core release, if it's not broke I suppose...
 
  Plus it still has the "My Horse is Amazing" video on it..

I answer the doorbell. My new monitor has arrived. I place it in my office, turn on my PC and do a daily check for any Vampire news.

And i see a Vampire displaying 1600x1200 with my brand new 1080p monitor sitting next to me! :|

I'm sure this new monitor will be good for a few years, but technology is moving beyond 1080p faster then i thought it would.

The monitor i bought:
