Memory chip is a x32 type, saving lots of space on the board (you may know that the old version of Indivision AGA had two memory chips, but this one will only have one). Memory performance is still high enough to saturate the 165MPixel/s maximum pixelclock of the DVI encoder: Total memory performance easily exceeds 200MPixel/s (old Indivision AGA: about 105MPixel/s).

Well at least we now know why it hasn't been released yet

I think we'd all rather wait for you to get the design optimised
