I haven't made the SD-Ram controller for anything faster than 25MHz/28MHz yet, so at this point, the Blizzard is faster. You cannot pre-order, the accelerators will be available before Xmas from my known resellers.

Indivision ECS on an A603 now fits, even with the CPU in a socket. The A603 is at a slight angle and all components touch each other, but there is no short or anything dangerous:
