Amiga 500 mini: A cute reminder not only for witnesses!


THEA500 Mini is an adorable mini-replica, a kind of tiny functional model of the Amiga. A real hardcore fan will have his recapped real Amiga, an occasional player just an emulator – so who is this tiny clone of a scale model for?

When I saw the scale Commodore 64 mini, I had to laugh: I found it comical, like a plastic model. But the Commodore 64 mini was functional – and this scale model of the Amiga is functional as well. In addition, it is really beautiful and detailed – a pleasure to look at.

The workmanship of the Amiga 500 mini is top notch, the details are brilliant and fine – and not only that, when you pick up the model, it quite familiarly prevails to the right, which was the case with the real 500, because it had a floppy mechanism on the right.

The cooling grooves are not only pressed, but really cut and functional, they really serve for cooling.

The Amiga 500 mini uses a 5 V with 1 A power supply, so it has a maximum power input of 5 W, which is surprisingly not much less than the real Amiga – it had a maximum power of 20 W.

The Amiga 500 mini has a SoC based on the Allwinner H6 Cortex A53, which allows it to emulate both the Motorola 68000 and (according to more demanding games such as Alien Breed 3D) the Motorola 68020. It supports both the original chipset and AGA, so it can emulate the Amiga 1200. The system allows you to set simulation parameters, processor and coprocessor simulation preferences as well as allocated RAM and fast RAM for individual games. Chip RAM is shared with coprocessors and can be set to the original level (512KB chip RAM and no fast RAM) or up to a luxurious combination of 2 MB chip RAM and 8 MB fast RAM.
