  Dude everything you asked for already exist. Combine V4 and classical Amiga and you have disk drive and all legacy port.
 
  But for standalone v4 it is a complete different beast. It is targeted for the future and not past.

I mean for those who have no Amiga at all.
Besides, specific Pamela features will most likely not be possible to output from the RCAs connected with the onboard Paula. You'd have to go the route of pickin up the sound from HDMI, then snag the sound onto RCA.
For the record, RCA are still great contacts

I agree with the old ports stuff. Frankly, I don't trust USB input for tiny amounts of data that keyboards, mice, trackballs, joysticks, etc. generate.

RCA is great. People DO still have great old stereos. (I miss CRTs too. Remember dragging a screen and getting multiple resolutions.... HOW COOL WAS THAT???)

What is the size of the SW that runs the USB and Ethernet i/o? Does it have to run if you're not using those parts of the Vampire?

Unless we get a MAJOR investment from someone/somewhere all of that and expansion ports and floppy disk drives are not going to happen. :-((((

Out of *curiosity*
Whats the *price difference* between Cyclone V model "5CEA5" and "5CEA7"?
(A7 gives double amount of LEs)
Anyone knows?

@Daniel Sevo

Over double the price. Just look on mouser.com, search on Cyclone V.

I wouldn't expect any news about V3000/4000 until after the V1200 is finished.

  Announcement is end of 2017 for A500/A600 and maybe A1200
  and first quater of 2018 for Standalone.
 
  Maybe announcement was a bit rushed to raise focus.
  Hardware exists, but there is no point in selling it before
  v3 core is fully implemeneted (and 2.7 is not yet public)
  and for v4 ApolloFPU too ... Also they need improved USB and Ethernet drivers too ... So its better that team does job good then that we have another "NG prerealise" debacle.

P.S.
In other news, I see people praise x5000/Cyrus 020 is availiable at all, but it still sold under "First encouters" banner.

V4 has 2 IDE connectors, will it take 2 or 4 drives?
