Oh, grats!

Does it have a crack on the edge-connector or is it just an optical illusion?

That's a work of art right there. That's equivalent to a 386/50mhz??

Doesn't really compare at all to a 386. Completely different CPU architecture, operating system and software available.

It's a very nice Amiga.

By itself the 68030 is definitely superior to the original, old school Intel 80386, but the 386 had provisions for external caches that were frequently used on high-end motherboards and could push its performance up to 68030 levels if the code caused lots of misses on the 030's relatively tiny caches.

Later 386 revisions had improvements that closed the gap whereas the 030 remained more or less the same chip through its lifetime. In particular some "386" equivalents from AMD that aren't strictly i80386 but were marketed as such.
