Pre-Ordered an ACA1233n-55
 
I just pre-ordered an ACA1233n-55 from the info given this should be one of the fastest '030 based A1200 accelerator available for some time. Anyone else excited to see a new product range from iComp?

I'm waiting for a new 060 turbo that kicks every previous 060 turbo's ass.

Me too! Are there any 040 or 060 projects in the works now other than the A3640 based one?

Wow, where did you find that? I had no idea that 55s were in plan.
Not that I am looking for upgrade, my ACA1233n 40MHz is plenty powerful for me, and I usually use it underclocked. Only fire up the frequency for 3D games :)
I can only imagine how fast the 55s would be.

A new 68060 accelerator for the A1200 would be awesome. Don't get me wrong, I like the ACA1233-55n and the A3660 as well, but neither are for me (already have a 68030, don't have an A3000/A4000).

E-Penguin 21 July 2019 21:14

Typical, I've only just got an aca1233n/26

Although the 55s are a bit on the pricy side!

the faster 030 turboboard is the blizzard 1230 iv 50 mhz overclocked to 66 mhz
anyways this one never reach the speed of a 040/25mhz not even close

Jens has mentioned an ACA1260 many times, but no official press release so far. CS-LAB is doing the Warp1260, pictures of prototypes have been shown, but most of the news/info is on the Polish forum.

Never seen a 030 stable with this clockspeed.

Niether do I. I was able to reach stable 62,5MHz, and 64MHz, but not stable.
66MHz was always out of reach. I tried two Blizzards IV cards, and few CPU masks 1F91, and G40W.

Lord Aga 25 July 2019 12:54

Maybe he just wanted to say that a hypothetical Blizzard at 66MHz would be faster :)

So I can do one better. A hypothetical Blizzard at 70MHz would be the fastest 030 card!

I sure hope nobody thinks of a number larger than 70... :nervous

Not that I am look

Me neither. Where can I preorder this??

A new 060 board along the lines of the Cyberstorm boards (not the PPC ones) with additional fast mem and maybe a couple SATA connectors would be really nice.

But sourcing quality 060's is hard (so many are knockoffs that don't work well), much harder than sourcing 030's.

Or something like a cost and feature reduced Vampire that just adds a faster CPU and addition memory.

Most interesting feature in this updated ACA1233n line is the improved IDE port speed. Bought my card a few month ago, but it seems upgradable for app. 60 Euros (according to Jens in his support forum).

Dear customer,

thank you for subscribing to product-related news. We're happy to announce that the ACA1233n will be available again by mid-august 2019. A total of five versions is in production with a new top model clocked at 55.55MHz. All ACA1233n now feature our new IDE speeder technology, which speeds up the internal IDE port of the A1200 without opening the computer. We're taking pre-orders now.

On IComp shop page.

Mrz 26 July 2019 09:41

the blizzard 1230 iv can reach 66mhz stable depending of the 030 revision and the memory module inserted, the fastest memory inserted the better chance to be stable at such speed, anyways forget to use the scsi kit at such speed

around 1999 I had a blizzard 1230 iv overclocked at 66mhz so I can confirm it works stable, then I sold that turboboard and I purchased an apollo 1240/40 mhz which I overclocked to 50 mhz using a 100mhz crystal and was stable using a 32mb simm
such apollo was fast as the 060/50mhz excepting in fpu which was a bit slower

then in 2005 I sold that apollo for 650 u$ and I purchased a tra1200 for 50u$ which is the fantastic turboboard still I'm using

I wonder how far the TF330 could be pushed? There is a little note on the PCB at the crystal saying 110mhz might work. The existing 100mhz divided by 2 gives you the 50mhz clock so 110mhz would be 55mhz or 125mhz would be 62.5mhz. That would be sweet and I feel a little experiment coming on.... Perhaps with some decent cooling and a full 030 it might get 55mhz. Can't see 62.5 working to be honest but might be worth a try.

As for 060 tech I heard whisperings of a TF360. An 060 accelerator for my CD32, I'm getting all fuzzy thinking about it.

I personally saw a prototype of it running. Still a little way to go, but it definitely exists, and works.

Excuse me I think I need a private moment....

I have had a ACA1233n-55 for over a year and can vouch for it. It is an extremely stable and capable card. I probably turn my amiga on probably every other day so it gets a lot use by me.

I can get about 12FPS on doom with low detail at fullscreen. As low as that sounds it is playable at that framerate. Games like Frontier run really really well.

You can also load any kickstart into it's ram to use. I usually have it load Kickstart 3.1.4 by default. I also have it so if I hold down the amiga key as I turn it on it will load Kickstart 1.3 into it's kickstart ram area.
