    Have a nice summer beer (or three if I count them correctly).

    I looked into making this myself, but I am lacking the soldering coordination to attempt it. It's good that capable people like you exist in the retro scene =)

    Interested in one for the A2000 when you have the creases ironed out on your test rig. Enjoy your summer break.

    Ok, will see what can i do to speed up Your quote


    About 68030TK on A2000 (using CPU Slot Cards/Adaptors):
    As reported previously - have started to test 68030TK Accelerators on A2k, it doesen't worked perfectly, so needed more time to understand what is going on and where these errors come from. As mentioned before - my CPU Slot was the culprit, have built many Vampire/TF530 Relocators in the past, tested them on my A2k before these was shipped, so CPU Slot was a bit loose and worn / made bad contact with CPU Slot card – this caused crashes in WHDLoad games and other stability issues. Swapped out edge connector to high quality one - and there was not a single crash/reboot since then.

    Well, as You may know 68030TK can be installed on A2k Amiga in two ways:

    1. In standard 68k Socket
    2. In CPU Slot Adaptor/relocator

    I’ve tried both positions and must admit both are ok, and card is running absolutely perfect. As for me – I prefer CPU Slot over 68k because:
    there is better air circulation,
    I need free space under the floppy drive as I’ve also expanded my ChipRAM to 2MB using Megachip (have some of them for sell – just ask me, if You are interested)


    CPU Slotcard features:
    CPU Slot adapter adds some nice features to the A2k Amigas, like additional IDE port, Clock port, an additional power socket.. Of course it can be used as standalone board or in bundle with some accelerators. Just keep in mind, this IDE has no bootrom, it means that it can’t be used to boot Your Amiga out of the box! (since I had installed it with my TK card – i've booted from it, but i wanted to install additional drive for file backups, so there are following possibilities to let it work:

    1. Mount this drive manually each time You boot your Miga
    2. Create Mountlist and let Amiga mount IDE automatically
    3. Add ide.device driver into Kickstart using Patch (with help of Remus software, this will make IDE Port bootable)

    Of course I have tested IDE port thoroughly and it works as it should. i will include this ide.device driver to each CPU Slot card i sell, so no worries here.

    A2k Clockport:
    Atm this is the only thing that wasn’t tested, still haven’t found any hardware to do it, so please feel free to add Your suggestions how this can be done..

    PS
    also decided to build some Low-End cards based on 020 CPU's, this cards will have 9.5MB of RAM, so these are perfect for WHDLoad games.. info will follow soon

    Any update on the 64mb version? I'm interested in this project but as projects in my end move slowly I'm curious if I should wait for that version.

    Momory area configuration is flexible, it has four profiles:
    8MB + 1,5MB Ranger + 1.5MB A0-B8 +ROM-Overlay (Total 11MB+1.5Mb FakeROM)
    6MB + 1,5MB Ranger + 1.5MB A0-B8 +ROM-Overlay (Total 9MB+1.5Mb FakeROM)
    8MB only
    Nomem/Off

    Runs @ 25Mhz with 5MFlops, 5.3MB/s IDE

    I'm interested in 1, depending on status for the project and if it will work with what i have in my A2K all ready.
    I have an A2000 with a GVP HC+8 that has 8 mb of fastram on it, i also have a ide4-zorro2 card and at some point i'll be looking for a gfx card aswell, what are my options?
