None is promise of Vampire 4000, but seems similar A4000 users exist.

Thanks for replying that you are interested in using your Toccata with Vampire.
As I own a VLAb Motion more CPU Power would be nice for Non-Linear Digital Video editing.

But A3000 and A4000 are rare machines. Most of them are fully upgraded with 68060, RAM, SCSI, Graphic card, network card and so on. This is history. But at the time you add an Arria 10 Vampire, you dont need this. Would you really use an A4000 as power adaptor for an Vampire 4000?
So here is the question: What special thing from your A4000 or A3000 do you need after you upgraded your Amiga with an Vampire?
First of all - not ALL A3000/A4000s are equipped with 060s. And even if they were - isn't the point of Vampire to bring ultrafast 68K core with a plenty of speedy RAM on board?
Second of all, if I could ditch my CyberVision 64/3D for a modern DIGITAL-VIDEO display, I would - as it doesn't hold today's standards (S3 Virge is obsolete to say it gently). Furthermore it would provide compatibility across different Vampire variants.
Then there is my Toccata, wchich I'd love to utilize in its full glory that 040@25 won't manage to do. A1200 soundcards are hard to come across, if you haven't noticed.
Therefore, I really hope that Apollo Team would release a V4000 version plugged in the CPU slot so that I have a superfast 68080 AMMX processor and real FastRAM so that I can stop using my 68040/25 and 16MB FastRAM from the mainboard, which is painfully slow.
If you don't have interest in one of these - that's fine - but please don't measure anyone with your own vision, and decide what's a "rare machine" and what's "history".
I love my A4K and for one I would be very happy to see V4000 as a 3640-style CPU card for easy drop-in replacement - with true FastRAM and IDE upgrade (as in V500).
And to answer your question - A4000 is exactly this - my SPECIAL Amiga, not like any other I own. Build differently, with different form factor, and with different possibilities. And calling it a "power supply for Vampire" is quite outrageous. V4000 would mean a new life for this special machine.
I think the same; I wait Vampire4000
