It is good. Give you loads of horsepower. You can run 060 demos!rubber_jonnie wrote: ↑Sat Nov 11, 2023 9:56 am This looks appealing: PiStorm Lite
I'm not a big A1200 user, and the accelerator I have installed is problematic in that in memory certain configurations blocks the PCMCIA ports, and I'm thinking this is a relatively inexpensive and flexible option to replace it.
Anybody tried it?
Main thing to be aware of is the HDMI out won't show the normal Amiga native display, only the high Res 'RTG' modes. There are solutions being worked on, feeding Amiga display signal into RPi camera port, so everything comes out the HDMI, but it is not available yet.
So you either need 2 displays or a HDMI/DVI which also takes 15khz. Although I find with the A1200 even with compatible LCD screens I get vertical banding.
(Scandoublers are quite expensive, so best to wait for RPi camera solution).
I read yesterday about a little program that will add on a 'PiStorm partition' to a normal Amiga HD image. I've not tried it yet, but then if you don't install the RTG high Res drivers, then you can use your normal Amiga HardDrive image with just a standard 15khz screen.
The 'CaffeineOS' a lot of people use, uses RTG so you get quite a modern looking Workbench over HDMI.
Sorry not sure if you know about Amiga RTG graphics. Basically PC resolutions, but they are not 15khz.
