If you want to add more than 8MB, you'll need to get an accelerator with a fully 32-bit CPU and support for 32-bit FastRAM.

The onboard 68020 can only support 8MB of FastRAM, and that's limited to 4MB if you want to use the PCMCIA port.

There are plenty of cards around that'll give you 4MB or 8MB FastRAM. Sometimes using SIMMs, others may have the RAM soldered directly on to the board.

I already have Blizzard 1230IV for one of my 1200s, So I want an A1200 Memory expansion accepting SIMM modules of 4 or 8 Mb as you said, thanks!! :coffee:
