The Vampire VI Seems Lost and Forgotten

Hi all

Now I'm a big fan of the Vampire products, owning a Vampire 600 V2 and the Vampire 500 V2 which I use in my A1500(A2000) build, it gives a great new experience to the Amiga.

Now I also own a Vampire V1 but I feel it been cast aside and forgotten by the creators. Its not even got a mention here in the products tab or on the Apollo-accelerators website.

Now I know its only a 020 but I feel it should still be honoured by the team showing the roots of your fabulous FPGA creations or maybe that's just me hehe.

Yes maybe you are right.
Maybe it should be mentioned.

As you know the V1 had a very small FPGA only.
And this small FPGA did limit the possibilities of the card greatly.

When the V1 is mentioned I think we need to make sure people not confuse the features of the V1 with the V2... As it would be bad if people accidentally buy a V1 secondhand when they look for the features of the V1.
