ok so a few days ago i posted about my a1200 recently retrieved from the loft after 23 years here is the card itself that i need the fpu and crystal for
http://eab.abime.net/attachment.php?...1&d=1542411427

like i said i know a little about this old card but its very old but that means cheap parts i hope :) ideally im looking for a person that has got both parts so 1 transaction

when i go this card in the mid-late 90's you could get it with th fpu and crystal i think but it was very very expensive i have herd these are now quite common and sometimes discard value ( more info needed) also i know about the pcmcia slot not working if i had it set to 8mb back ten i dint need that slot so i kept it at 8mb i have an amiga 1200 rev 2b if i got the timing fix done (if the rev 2B needs it ?.) would that enable the pcmcia slot again ?. im loking fo specs and known solid setups with crystal-fpu no mega overclock-flaky system stability if thats possible . pls comment for warned is for armed


cheers dave

That's just a common Amitek Hawk RAM expansion, they was very popular back in the day. It can have a PLCC 68882 FPU fitted that runs at 20, 33 or 40 MHz.
Try Vesalia for the FPU and xtal, failing that Amibay.
Card is listed at the BBOAH here: https://bboah.com/index.php?action=a...996&artlang=en

ok yeah i get your point about popularity thats probably beacuse there were like todays pc budget boards compared to i think they were called blizzard that was 2-2.5 x the price of the market value of the a1200 that was my reason for getting it 8mb was crazy back then ill i will go take a gander thank you for the info .

That's because the Blizzard and similar cards are CPU accelerators with 32 bit memory addressing. The Amitek is a memory expansion only, it only contains memory within the Zorro memory address.
Also note a FPU won't speed up the Amitek, it would only be useful if you was running software that required a FPU.
