  • Wie so viele Dinge ist auch dieses Projekt von der "chip shortage" betroffen. Ich kann derzeit nicht einmal einen Prototypen bauen, so dass die Entwicklung rein virtuell stattfindet.

  • And if the 16MHz A3000 is equipped with G-Force 040?


    ...then it should be no problem to set the jumpers to 25MHz board clock - that will also increase Z3 performance.

    Agreeing on the performance boost using 25MHz vs 16MHz, and RAMSEY access will likely improve, but I believe the CPU/FPU will still get those faster clocks, no?

  • but I believe the CPU/FPU will still get those faster clocks, no?

    Since there's an accelerator in most of those systems, that's not a problem at all. Further, all the 16MHz A3000 computers that I have seen so far were fine being overclocked to 25MHz. I have yet to see a CPU that a) can't take the overclocking and b) causes trouble when an accelerator is active (they are tri-stated in those cases).


    If any of these observations were wrong, there would be a need to support 16MHz operation. At this point, I don't see it.
