A2000 unknown turbo board - advice needed
« on: October 18, 2002, 06:49:10 PM »
Sometimes months go by without anything new to happen. Recently I got two computers from which one is an A2000. I already did a posting about Hardware problems where I got a lot of great advice although I still need to fix something ....
Now when I was searching through my room for my OS 3.1 discs I found something that I can't remember having bought somewhere, so it must have arrived here with the A2000. In that computer there's already an A2630 Rev 9 turboboard with 2 Mb Ram !! Cool !! Now 64 Mb extra and I would feel a lot better !!!  :-D
But the card that I found does not really seem to belong to that A2000 and also not to the A4000 that came together with the A2000. It's a small card, not Zorro-like and it needs to be plugged into something that I'm not familiar with. There's a 68030 and 68882  on it but nothing to add Ram to. It's made in 1992, has the brand Commodore, and seems to be '68020/68030 Board Rev 1.0' for 'A3200/A3400' ...
Is this a turboboard for an A3000 ??? Without Ram modules on it ?? Can this be possible ?? I don't see how to fit it on a A2000 !! Advice needed. What can I do with it ??

What CPU card is in the 4000? this sounds like the original 030 card.

In the A4000 D there was a Cyberstorm MK2 68060 card ... still is actually ... but I haven't tried to unplug is to see what is really looks like. The only thing I can put in that A4000 D is air or light. It's really fully packed !!

As nOw2 suggested, THIS may be an original 030 board from a A4000/030!
Don't forget there were 040 AND 030 versions of the A4000 Desktop.

and no room for RAM because the A4000's RAM was fitted on the Mobo.

Does indeed sound like the original CPU card for the A3000/A4000. They did not have any RAM on board, which is why using even an '030 aftermarket card with RAM would speed up the system.
Use it for target practice.....
