View Full Version : Closed WANTED: Info and/or GVP HD8+ RAM

20th February 2008, 23:15
Hi All,

I am looking for a few simms to put in my GVP-hD8+ sidecar, if you have any spare let me know how much you want for them. Alternatively if somebody could shed some light on the exact spec that I should be looking for that would be equally just as good!

Thanks in advance

hello there

The HD8+ takes 30pin simms, I belive i have 8x 1mb sticks of them, i will double check later, should that i do, you cn have them for £5 which will include postage :)

heres some info on the card

Impact A500 HD8+ Series II

* SCSI 2 DMA controller 3.58 MB/s transfer speed
* FaaasT ROM SCSI driver (gvpscsi.device) - autobooting requires at least Kickstart 1.3
* RDB compatible
* place for a 3.5" hard disk inside the case
* 50 pin internal header
* DB25 external connector
