Yes, the fast RAM on an A4000 is slower to access than fast RAM on an A1200. My understanding is that it's down to the design of the A3640 in the 4000/040. The fast RAM access is faster in the...

True, but it's easy for us to forget how expensive RAM was back in those days. Even 1MB of true Fast RAM would have made a HUGE difference to the 1200, but it would have also made a huge difference...

My understanding is that it's not JUST the cost savings involved with using the one clock signal and multiplying and dividing to get all the other clock signals required.

Yes, the A1200 had/has a 68020, but in this case, we did the equivalent of adding an accelerator to an A500 with a faster CPU and 1MB of Fast RAM. It doesn't matter that it's not on AGA. That...

Good point. Also perhaps we could get a 0.25 increment by using more than a single increment or decrement. So maybe 0000FF and 0000CC, which should give something like 0000E3 in theory, although...
