Hey everyone,

I'm looking for a pcmcia SRAM card to use in my A1200 so I can properly use WHDLoad. Ideally 2/4 Mb would suit me, obviously depending on cost.

Thanks!

I advise you to trie to pick up a ram expansion instead (y) , as PCMCIA ram on a A1200 reduces de speed of the system.

PCMCIA RAM cards are only useful for the A600, where it gives the system a boost of ~30%. Off course, real local memory plugged over the 68000 will boost the performance over 100%.

On the A1200 the same memory will degrade the performance by 30~40%. 2x speed increase (or a bit more) when a trapdoor memory expansion is used.
