For sale is an E-Matrix / Viper 530 (Amiga 500) and also the brother, E-Matrix/Viper T-630 (Amiga 600) accelerators for the Amiga 500.

Both cards are fully tested and working.

I think these cards need no introduction, they are amongst the best and rarest cards that were available for these systems. Both are in very good condition and will be packaged carefully before shipping.

530: The Holy Grail of A500 expansions, this card has it all. Comes with utility disk, jumper cable (INT2<->Paula), and switch for compatibility mode. Takes 72PIN RAM SIMMs up to 128MB, has optional second RAM socket. Has 2.05 KS ROM installed, 68030 CPU currently running at 40MHz but can be upgraded to 50 MHz by a simple oscillator upgrade. All IDE ports and SCSI port are tested and working. The card can boot from either the IDE1 or the 2.5" IDE connector. Maximum of 4 IDE/ATAPI devices and 1 FAST SCSI2 device can be connected to the system (with IDEfix sw). Please understand that this is a delicate and complex board, and not easy to set up - do a proper research how to do this -there will be no warranty or returns on this card.

T-630: The little brother, comes with utility disk and an install guide (German). The card has a 68030 CPU running at 40MHz and has 4MB on-board and is PCMCIA friendly. This card is more or less plug and play (clips over the 68000 on the motherboard) but careful alignment is needed to install properly.

And the small print: I take pride in packaging all my items very well, with materials appropriate for the item. I have plenty of bubble wrap, padded envelopes, foam, anti-static bags and cardboard boxes. Post Danmark is more expensive than e.g. German post or Royal Mail but they are very reliable and fast, even with non-signed parcels. An economy letter to the UK typically takes 3-4 working days, often delivered only in 2 days.

Most of my items are New Old Stock (NOS) quality, unmodified and complete with original packaging, all accessories, manuals, inlays etc. I usually go out of my way to help resolve any problems. I normally test my items before sending out, but I can't offer any warranty or returns as I'm a private collector and most of my stuff is more than 15 years old.

Lucky Stan.......

It seems that you will grab this treasure asap.

I wish to you many hours of fun and modding with this excellent upgrade. I assume that you will swap the oscillators (both) to 50MHZ and install FPU and socketed 030 as well.

Thanks Seaside.

Yes, I will.
Have Indi ECS + Derringer 030 and clockport expander + Delfina waiting to be installed.

Now time to upgrade Derringer 030 with something better an forget about external GVP HDD SCSI.

With regards E Martix modding:
No, I will not do any modding. It's too rare to mod such piece of hardware art.

And I will gain nothing having few MHz extra.
So I will keep it as it is now.
Hope to pass my collection to one of my son someday...

Keep in mind that Derringer works well with IDE68K. But you need to make a cable-version socket to move it backwards.

Tell me about it! I've been browsing the other bay for a Cyberstorm 060 for under 50 for years but no luck.. ;) Plus, there will always be another brother (Brothers in Insanity that is) who will buy your gear off you for the same price you've paid..

Can side slot expansions like the A590 or A570 be used with the Viper 530? Unfortunately, it is not the case with its sister the Viper A520CD.
