    Default Apollo 1260 SCSI performance

    I have an Apollo 1260 (upgraded 1240) overclocked to 66 MHz and I was just wondering if the SCSI upgrade is worth it. I know it doesn't use DMA which is a shame, but that’s life. I would use it with a SCSI2SD adapter or similar device.

    I’ve heard that it performs around 4 MB/s but is that true even with an overclocked 060? And does it use less CPU than the internal IDE even if it does not use DMA?

    I get a bit less than 2,5 MB/s with the IDE port now with a compact flash card so an increase of around 1,5 MB/s is not worth the cost.

    Is there anyone here with an Apollo 1260 and the SCSI module that can run a few benchmarks? I’m guessing that the SCSI module on the Apollo 4040/4060 is more or less the same so those benchmarks could be interesting too.

    I have bad luch with the SCSI2SD, but with ACard to PATA adapter I'm currently running the Blizzard 1260 SCSI IV in 10MB/s.
