Interesting, thanks! I'm not really bothered by disk speeds, just thought it was an odd difference in performance.

Hi all, not really a cry for help, but rather a few musings/observations recently made.

What an eye for fonts :) Since I don't remember where I got it from, any pointers? It would be good with a download link if I lost it for any reason.

Nope, I don't know of any CPU card that can do this. I guess that on a processor card, the RAM is directly wired to the faster CPU and thus inaccessible to the 68020 on the MoBo.

It's an A600 HD with a working HDD. It also worked fine with a CF->IDE adapter. Pretty recent kickstart IIRC.

C= 1084S monitor cable

Hello!
Just bought a nice C= 1084S. Works brilliantly, although the RGB cable is a bit worse for wear. Amigakit sells cables with Amiga RGB -> 9-pin D-Sub as a "Philips 8833 cable". Am I correct in...

Yup, that was it. Thanks. Too bad D3D doesn't do pixel scaling as well as DDraw. Windows 8 has got to be the worst to come out of Redmond since, uh, Windows ME?
