  • Hi.

    I heard a new buster chip is being developed by Dave Haynie.

    I tried to figure out more about this but I cant find anything.

    How will this be better then the old buster chip?

    Is there an estimate on when it can be released?

  • Sorry, no details yet.

    The existing Buster chip has a few bugs, mainly with Busmaster DMA. These are "fewer" with the -11 version than with the -9 version, but they still trigger in the form of complete bus-hangs.

    With Buster-11 being sold out for good, I thought it's a good idea to make a replacement that appeals to the whole Amiga community, and makes fake chips completely unattractive.
