    Hi there, The Rev7 is pretty rare in that it was another transition motherboard revision between the A500 and A500+. Mostly they were Rev 6 and Rev 8.

    I think the Rev 7 came with the 1MB RAM on board and a few other minor changes - you may want to take some hi-res photos of the motherboard in a clean state for future reference/discussion!

      It has 8272 agnus, but only 512kb ram on board.

            O n e intersteing thig is that this rev7 board has a sticker wich says 87/88, when rev 6 board I'm currently use is has 90/91

            So what is time line of these revisions??

              Also the production date of chip custom is older, it seems a production with timeline aligned to revision 5.
              Maybe Commodore produced revision 6 an 7 after revision 5, the rev. 6 never seen the light and after very few examples of revision 7 marketed they passed to revision 6A (an evolution of rev.6) that is the most common in A500.
