Welcome to Apollo Accelerators website !


Apollo Accelerators is an Amiga Classic accelerator board product line. It uses the Apollo core which is a code compatible Motorola M68K processor but is 3 to 4 time faster than the fastest 68060 at time. It also brings Amiga Classic near to Amiga NG by bringing digital video with millions of colours.

Datasheet | Manual


Fastest Amiga CPU

Faster than a 68060 at 100MHz, capable of Next Gen workloads (watching movies, listening to digital music, etc.)

Digital Video Output

32-Bit Digital output from RTG and SAGA. You can now plug in your new shiny LCD screen up to 720p.

Fast Storage

Use IDE up to 11MB/s and a MicroSD card as hard drive and say goodbye to your aging floppies and old SCSI drives.

User upgradable

New cores are uploaded directly from your Amiga, giving you new functionalities and performances when they hit the street.

Loads of memory

Ever heard of the sentence "640K Ought to be Enough for Anyone" ? Vampire is cranking it up to 128MB.


We also think paying 1500€ for an old 68060 accelerator plus RTG is pure madness.
