ZZ9000 for Amiga

More Than Just Graphics.

ZZ9000 is the successor to the VA2000 Amiga graphics card. But it can do more than just graphics: based on the Xilinx ZYNQ XC7Z020 chip, it features not only a powerful 7-series FPGA, but also 2 ARM Cortex-A9 cores and DDR3 memory.

Compatible With Amiga 500, 2000, 3000 and 4000 (Zorro 2 and 3 compatible)

Important: To use ZZ9000 with Amiga 500, you need a Zorro II adapter like Rob Cranley's Z-500 or the Checkmate 1500 Zorro adapter.


  • RTG: Up to 1920 x 1080 FHD screen resolution at 8bit 256-colors "Chunky", 16bit or 32bit color depths (1920 x 1080 at 16 bit, all other resolutions up to 32 bit)
  • Enhanced VA2000CX Amiga native video passthrough functionality with AGA support (scandoubler with interlace flicker-fixer)
  • USB port supports USB mass storage devices. The driver allows you to access USB sticks from workbench (beta, in further development).
  • Ethernet interface: Get your Amiga online
  • SD Card interface (for firmware updates, not usable from AmigaOS)


  • Dual 666 MHz ARM Cortex A9 coprocessors to offload computing tasks like JPEG (in development), MP3 decoding and graphics acceleration
  • 1 GB DDR3 RAM
