    Default MegaChip for A2000 (no Agnus required)

    Hi all,
    There was a previous thread like this one a few weeks ago, and the user managed to pick one up, so I thought it is worth a shot as well.

    I'm looking for DKB MegaChip without the Agnus chip for my A2000.

    Does it have to be a DKB MegAChip? There is someone here making alternatives that solder in place of the Agnus. You or someone you know would need to be able to de-solder the old Agnus socket and solder the adapter direct or add pin-headers.

    Hi alexh,

    Thanks for the suggestion, I do know about those units, picked one up from 8 bit dreams a few months ago, not really what I am after tho.

    With the A2000 motherboard I am working on ATM, I have already replaced the 84 pin PLCC socket previously (due to a flaky socket).
    I really do not want to add any further heat stress on the PCB eyelets and tracks if possible by removing it again.

    That is why I prefer a Megachip with the male type 84 pin plug adapter that just pushes into the Agnus socket, trying to avoid any further stress on the MB.

    I have a couple of spare 8375 Agnus(2MB), and really did not want to go down the expensive ACE2 path.

    cheers,
