Yeah, I definitely didn't realize that. I'm still new to the Amiga thingy and keep getting confused about all those terms, as I didn't spent last 3 decades reading up on all those terms.

I guess all my experience is only directly useable on a 060/080, as even though Jag also has a 68000 (@13.3 MHz) it is still feeding Blitter, which behaves quite differently on that architecture...
