Didn't see a thread about this here, so just posting it for anyone's info: https://www.reactive...t/transwarp-gs/

 

Probably too rich for my blood, but in case anyone else is interested. It is still significantly cheaper than the last few original Transwarp GS cards went for on Ebay.

 

I was saying in another thread a few months ago that I wish somebody would make an updated accelerator card the way they're doing with memory, but I was expecting it to be like a $100-$200 card at this point. If it was even $200, I'd almost definitely preorder.

It is "expensive" because it is like the original, a clone. And that's to be expected.

Agreed that this is out of the price range for most people.  If only a2heaven.com had a IIgs version of the FASTChip //e...

Really?? Man, I would definitely pay the price of the FASTChip for a IIGS version... that would be a day one preorder.

Sadly if it were as easy as accelerating an Apple II I think other options would have appeared on the market by now, or even back in the day. I hope A2Heaven can figure out a way to do it that is less costly than the Transwarp method, but I doubt a simple solution would achieve the level of compatibility that the Transwarp and ZipGS achieved.
