This is true. Both of the 010 chips were given to me because they were useless (except for collectors and packrats). For a short time, I had one installed in my A500 and the only noticable difference was the reduced compatibility. When I get them from CA, if you are still around this place, I will just give them to you. If you search on the web, they aren't even that hard to find. I have seen them on ebay and on sites that sell Amiga hardware. And they are cheap, since nobody wants them.
