  Actually the Quake trick, that I explained you,
  is exactly what is done in Quake on PC.
  This FPU-DIV trick was one of the cool new tricks/inventions of Quake.
 
  The FDiv on 68K was relative slow - so this trick did not work that good for Amiga.
  But as you saw 68080 can do FDIV much faster than all previous 68k.
  Even 68060 needed ~50 cycle for FDIV -
  APOLLO changes this significantly and can reach peak throughput of one FDIV per clock.
 
  APOLLO opens some new options for coders.
  You can clearly see this in several areas in Minibench.
 
  BTW do you have a Vampire too?

No, I dont have Vampire II (not enough RAM for me). Im waiting for Vampire IV, the best for A4000T, if not available, then perhaps i will buy A500 version.

The Vampire-2+ for A500 is very good. I would recommend to get one.

128 MB is plenty for AMIGA OS.
Memory Speed is stellar - 10 times faster than your typical 68060 card.
The IDE speed is very good, I have seen people read 20 MB/sec from IDE-HD, which is faster than the fast-memory on many AMIGA CPU cards. ;-)

The Vampire2 is a good card and makes your A500 outrun all other Amigas.

Yet so far ;)

Motorola stopped making 68060 processors a long time ago and FPGA Arcade has proven they're unable to match the Apollo Core in performance. MiSTer hasn't moved off the TG68 and it doesn't sound like there's anything else out there.

Yup, but the V4 is coming, and hopefully ASIC AC68080 products in the future.
That’s what the ”yet so far” was for.

If I’m not mistaken, even freescale failed by now
Long live Motorola!!

Thank you for posting this, i have a 25Mhz Apollo 1240 for my 1200 so this gives an idea to performance of a future Vampire upgrade.
