Eh, kinda does everything on the system now.  There are other systems he should consider, such as getting into the 32-bit realm.

I'm precisely wondering who would buy this, the regular model already costs 200 dollars, an amount many are willing to pay for the promise of near 100% compatibility. Would anyone pay 50 (wishful thinking, might be more)  more for just save states on SA-1 / SFX?

I think it would be worth it for the SGB working with it alone though it would be a shame if they cannot implement a way to use the loaded SGB boarder with any non SGB enhanced game like how the old Gameboy switcharoo trick used to work.

I doubt I'll upgrade, as great as the SD2SNES is already.  It's definitely been my most solid flash cart; nary an issue with it.

I'm curious to know if ikari_1 is using an FPGA with more memory - it'd be interesting to see an SD2SNES capable of MSU-1 enhanced SA-1 and GSU-1/2 games, to say nothing of the few remaining unsupported chips (though these, I feel, are of less import).

Xilinx Spartan 3 - XC3S400-4PQG208 == 32$ LINK
Altera Cyclone IV E - EP4CE15F17C8N == 29$ LINK

This Cyclone IV is almost twice the logic gates BUT the price is slightly less than the older Xillinx Spartan 3.
According to ikari, the reason for the update is to stop having to buy end of life parts like the Xilinx Spartan 3 FPGA and Ram chips which are no longer in production,
also to prevent chinese clones since the Pro will have more advanced clone protection.
In actuality there is nothing 'pro' about it just yet, it is the same firmware as the current sd2snes until further development.

The price of the Sd2SNES Pro should be the same as the current SD2SNES since the manufacturing costs are the same.
The best solution is to lower the price of the current sd2snes till the stock runs out, and sell the new sd2snes-pro for the current price of 197$.
So if the price is higher than 200$ it is nothing but monetization by krikzz since the actual manufacturing is the same if not cheaper.

With that being said, I am excited for the new SD2SNES Pro if it is fairly priced. :)

Looks cool an all - I like the new label! But personally I like to see a N8 Pro one day.

Edit: Saw Iggor's tweet regarding N8. Interesting!

I may wait for a review. Ill prob get rev 2 as I want a more perfect version.
If the is a SGB built in. I hope they put a link cable plug on the cart. Hope they can squeeze gbc or even gba but a doubt gba.
The sd2snes is top notch at the moment. The fx and sa-1 firmware doesn't run 100% speed. i think it's close enough thou.
Lets hope it runs all the chip games with savestats and cheats with almost 100% capability.
I bet most people will stick with their sd2snes.

Yeah, this is because outdated parts price constantly rise once production stopped. Those spartans production already stopped for a long time and they become costs astronomical amounts. New cyclone has much more power and at the moment cost even less than spartan.
SD2SNES PRO retail cost will be same, by the way.

Clone protection? In an open source project?

I wonder if it would be possible (on paper at least) for the SD2SNES Pro to play Game Boy Color games... now THAT would be a big reason to upgrade.

Upgrading to in-production components does make sense. 

As for increased power with MSU1, I'm not really sure what avenues that opens up to?  It's still a Super NES/Famicom with the same old, slow processor and whatnot!
