Hello,

please you will excuse me if I'm posting this in the wrong forum section.
It seems that there are many here looking for a 68882@50Mhz, while others may be just silently standing by the window waiting for this item to pass by.

I've found someone willing to bulk sale a bunch of them for a better price.
Is it worth checking how "better" would be this price?
How many are there interested in this? I need two of them. We can proportionally share the shipping (from Yankeeland).

The guy is selling XC68882RC50 declared compatible with a/b/c or MC68882RC50.

Please excuse me again if this is plain breaking the forum's rules.
Otherwise, please let's do a nose count *quick* and see.

EDIT: the seller answered my proposal: $35 each for 10 pieces. Not an astounding price, if you ask me but lower than what I see around.

I'd be in on this for 2 of these depending on the price of course.

I'd be interested in 1 of them. I presume I could run it at @ 14mhz until I got different oscillator?

OK, interest noted.

Hmmm.. I'm probably netter off ordering just a slow one. It'll be a lot cheaper :)

I'm not technically qualified to answer to this, but I will gather all questions and forward them to the seller.

Gouldin, if you need a lower PGA FPU I could help you out with a 12Mhz one, which will be much cheaper :)

I assume these will be ceramic PGA packages, being rated at 50MHz n'all.

They should run just fine underclocked at 14MHz.

Going to go with john hares offer. 50mhz seems overkill for a 14mhz 020 :)

Make sure you get the right chip package for your CPU card. There are ceramic PGA packages and plastic PLCC ones. Different cards take different FPU packages.

It's going into a M-Tec 68020i. This one takes either :)

Saves me from figuring out which type is which :D

I'll throw in a PLCC@25Mhz too if you don't mind :lol:

Due to to poor response, I'm giving up with this. Thread can be closed AFAIC.
