ACA630 thermal tests successful

Hi guys,

we've finished the thermal tests of the ACA630: No need for active cooling and no need to remove the drive! (well, if you can live without Indivision ECS).

The good news is that the temperature stayed low enough to offer a slightly faster version of the ACA630:

ACA630 is also available with 30MHz and 64M ram.

We're keeping the temperature low by under-clocking a 33MHz CPU (with full MMU) to 30MHz. The memory controller was kept at the same pace with a 2-1-1-1 burst, so the speedup over the 25MHz version is really linear. Sysinfo shows
7.24 MIPS / 6936 Dhrystones. The price is slightly higher at 199,- EUR (compared to 159,- EUR for the 25MHz / 32MByte version).

Both versions (25 and 30MHz) will ship early next week. If you want to change your pre-order with your reseller, there's enough time to do so. Those who have already ordered may be contacted by their resellers, giving the option to upgrade.

make your decision a little easier, I have added the AIBB module of the 30MHz version.
