When you connect the power switch it is a HARD switch, which means you must run the Shut Down Amiga/Linux command before pressing the power switch to turn off. This is a Pi4 issue and we hope to address in the future.

Introduction and explanation video of Ami-Hybrid concept and power of setup
The Raspberry Pi4 is possibly the ultimate setup for the retro fan if performance and ease of use are the criteria. It has been the basis for most Retro emulation systems for quite a while now and can run a huge amount of old systems including some fairly powerful 3D engine based retro hardware like the PS1, Nintendo 64 and Sega Saturn games which are often perfectly upscaled to higher resolutions.
If complete accurate simulation of the retro machine is not your thing then it is the obvious choice, although if setup correctly, the Pi4 can emulate the Amiga almost perfectly. Add to the Pi4 the Ami-Hybrid system that enables the most powerful Amiga experience outside of the usual PC emulation systems, then you will be in Amiga emulation heaven :-)
Amiga emulation performs above 200x the speed of an Amiga A3000 according to Sysinfo.
Very fast emulation performance, 1000mips in Sysinfo, 200+ x A3000
Linux based emulation
2gb (fine for Amiga) up to 8gb
With Ami-Hybrid you get best of both worlds
Not accurate chip emulation like FPGA, however, if you set to 50hz screen display I doubt you will be able to tell the diference :-)
If you think emulation is a dirty word then this is emulation.
