One of the issues I see with this design, is it's awkward shape when trying to fit it to the A1200 motherboard. Pushing expansion cards onto the A1200 edge is hard enough at the best of times, let alone trying to find somewhere for your fingers to push against.

This is only a mockup of a board so we are discussing something that may not end up looking as it is but if you look at photographs of Blizzard 12x0 boards, you will notice that they are approximately 1.5 times longer than the width of the connector. The wing-shaped v1200 is only about as long as it is wide which means that contrary to the old accelerator cards there will be lots of space inside the A1200's expansion slot for handling the card.

Since this is only a prototype that isn't even completely routed yet, you can only guess.

What I think is really cool news that was posted to the Apollo Team Facebook page is it seems the guys here have sourced a company to make brand new A1200 expansion connectors for the A1200 Vampire.

Could someone please share a picture of the connector which is hosted elsewhere than facebook?

Yeah, especially after all this time not knowing where the connectors would come from

I'm new here and hardly waiting for the version for the Amiga 1200 ;-) do you have a roughly idea when the board will be available? Thank you!
