68060 speed, no MMU, no FPU, no 3D.
There will be no revolution. Vampire is too slow, too overpriced for people outside Amiga community.
Market will saturate, and sales will drop.
For Amiga NG users Amiga OS 4 and MOS still offer better performance.
They have just demo'd a soft fpu package that, while it isn't as fast as an '040 or '060 fpu, is faster than a 68882.
MMU I'm not that worried about.
And unless you go RTG, 68K doesn't really have 3D.
I'm surprised they sold 4000 without saturating the market.
How many functioning Amigas are left on the planet?
And of course PPC NG users get better performance.
You're preaching to the choir again.
