Imagine a brand new, Commodore Amiga 3000 inspired desktop computer case sitting on your desk today, that's what we want to bring to you again. 


Following on from the successful launch of the Checkmate 1500 Plus case Kickstarter in 2019 we wanted to add a smaller and more compact case to the range.


The last project the Checkmate 1500 Plus allowed you to build a big box Amiga using the parts from an Amiga 500, A1200 and the 600 and these are still available. 


This new case, is for building an Amiga without having any Amiga parts, this is why we have these packs to get you up and running with a great Amiga experience. Of course, you could just fit a Mini ITX PC instead.

 

The deluxe version includes the case but adds the 3.5 standard drive and DVD panel inserts, the DVD tray for LG GS40N slot loading drive, the PSU support bracket, colour packaging with external protective brown box and a printed deluxe manual.

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.

 

Overall

If complete accurate simulation of the retro machine is not your thing then it is the obvious choice. 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 :-)

 

Performance

Amiga emulation performs above 200x the speed of an Amiga A3000 according to Sysinfo.

 

Pros

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

 

Cons

Not accurate emulation like the simulated hardware created in FPGA but much faster, well unless you change the monitor frequency to 50 hz refresh rate.
