Looking for a faster 040, currently have 040@25 (060 a possibility dependent on cost) for my A4000 desktop. Anything considered, memory & SCSI options would be good, let me know what you have :coffee:

Decided a 060 would be preferable, almost any 060 considered….

Maybe you would like to upgrade your cpu board from 040 to 060 by changing the CPU only and buy ZorroRAM. It could be much cheaper. I can help.

Already have a ZorroRAM card, I don't think you can upgrade a A3640..??

Next week I will meet with somebody who can do this. He need a MC68060 rev 6 and socket adapter (040->060). If we do that successfully I will report this fact here.

There's already a prototype adapter to convert 040-060, I've seen it used on a WarpEngine 040, I'd love one for mine! (060 @ 80mhz :o) I think the drivers are experimental though.

Personally I wouldn't bother upgrading the A3640, the memory interface is crippled enough already, you want a processor board with local Fast Ram.

I had an A3640 with Quad Doubler, 50mhz 040, it was fun for proof of concept, good MIPS bit in real use it was much slower than my WarpEngine 040/40mhz, 3D Games really suffered. (Yes I had ZorRam, in fact 2x 128mb)
