On my MkII & Powerflyer Gold with a Blizzy 1230 I get 6mb/sec with 300x CF with SFS File System. (PIO4)

On Native IDE its 1.6-1.7mb/sec tops. So yeah its about 3.5x faster

Check out Doom loading:

Its pretty quick eh?

You may be able to do better with the newer unit + PFS3.

I really wanted to test it out with an ACA1230 + SSD as I know people have hit 8-9mb/sec with these setups

But my ACA + A1200 had weird issues... So I went back to the trusty Blizzy 1230
