I'll only guarantee it to work with my own A1200 accelerators. If it works with others: Good for you! If it doesn't, I can't give any additional support. I mean.. look at the price - it barely covers production cost and only pushes sales of my other products (well, at least that's the plan).

The ACA500 is made for the A500 and comes with an elaborate mounting kit. The board consists of two parts, one that sits in the 68000 socket, and another that contains the accel/CF-slot/A1200 slot. It'll work on a technical basis, but probably not mechanically. However, I still have that open promise of "2MByte chipram for A1000", which I may combine with a nice solution for the ACA500.

The 68020 is much slower on the bus than 68030, so superfast memory won't boost it that much. It will mostly gain from the bare fact that it has fastmem, but other than that, it's more like a memory expansion to the A1200. A rather large one, that is :-) As mentioned in the news item, it's only "turbo" from the A500 viewpoint.

Yep, that's about it. However, with that much RAM, you can hold lots of stuff in ramdisk and avoid HD-waiting times ;-)
