Get that corrosion neutralized and cleaned up and then take some more pics of that area above the Agnus. That doesn't look too good to me and you have have some bad traces and vias.

Exactly.

A600/A500/A1000/A2000 uses a 16-bit external data bus and 24-bit address bus.

A1200/A3000/A4000 are native 32-bit designs, or at least hybrid 16/32 in some ways.

It's very similar to that. It has 41256 chips on it, so populated as 2M (sockets). There is an extra set of jumpers in the middle of the card also.

I'll take a quick photo this evening.

Perfect. Better than a 1080/1084. It's one of the "HR/high res" PVM's, which means just finer dot pitch I think.

Strangely, my ACA500+ doesn't work in either of my 500's, but works fine on my 1000. As long as it's seated right, anyway- it has to be propped up at a little bit of an angle to boot.

Sure you have the chip aligned properly? It seems like some 600's have larger socket than the ROM and it can be offset. I may be thinking of the 1200 though.
