The list is incorrect.

Walker is a prototype and it is not vaporware. It exist in 3 pieces. (I know 2 of 3 owner)

The same for BoXer...

Prototype does not count. Vapor is defined as a product not available for sale after a long period of time, such as Duke Nukem Forever.

There were two PowerVixxens - The LT for A1200s and the TL which was supposed to be a powerful system.

Also there were originally supposed to be G3 versions of the Blizzard and CS, however these were dropped.

By Coldfire do you mean Oli_HD's project?  If so that's a bit unfair as it is(was?) only ever a personal project done in his spare time.

Yet? The Pegasos III (PPC 970) was announced in July 2003 with a release date of "begining of 2004".

@uncharted

I think it qualifies as it was well known. Heck, i wanted one. This is a gray area for sure, it's open for debate:-)

@humppa

Good point, it will stick.

I don't know about the status, but I doubt it will ever be released:
AHT AmiVD/daVinci Zorro III Gfx card
Link


edit:

How could you have missed the "mystery device" aka IBM reference Pda?

I Agree, it's not very nice classing that project as "vaporware" as he was always honest and open about what was going off, and it was just his little project.

I think you should separate out little projects like this from the real vapourware, i.e. the A5000 and all that poo.
Restraining orders are just another way of saying I love you!

That's cool.

RE the GFX card:

I think there are a lot of things we all desperately wanted to believe in.  I know I really wanted the PV to be true, and slapped anyone who dared suggest vapour. :oops:
