Amiga CDTV / A500 8MB RAM Board
« on: May 09, 2017, 11:48:46 PM »
Just snagged one of these Amiga CDTV A500 / 8MB RAM Boards. I've been looking forever for an easy fast ram solution for my A500 (Kipper2K board is hard to get now). He has a couple left. :) Price is good but that exchange rate is :(  .....

Yes, enjoy indeed! Now on to a PlipBox and a SCSI2SD adapter. :) Then the Mechy SCSI card reader goes into the A2K! :)

BTW Mike, this seller also has quite a few GVP 4MB 64-Pin SIMMs... aren't these the rare ones you were trying to source for a long time? It seems to me that I recently saw a thread on EAB were someone (Matze?) had a new batch made up for GVP accelerators.

Nah, I found what I needed forever ago.  It was from something similar - someone made up their own batch of GVP-compatible SIMMs over on Amibay, since original ones are like hen's teeth!  ;)  Thanks though!

Interesting RAM upgrade! I havent seen that one before. I have one that goes on the diagnostic port in mine. Also gives me 8MB auto config.

I bet this would work in an A500 as well?

That's what I'm hoping! :laugh1:

Actually, I'm thinking this will work in an A2000 as well. Might need a Rev6 mobo though. But my Blizzzzzz suites my fast ram needs in my A2K just fine! :)

I wonder who had these made up? Nice simple design.

Annnnnnnnd, all 5 of them are sold!

Should work in an A2000 as long as it physically fits underneath the drive sled. Also probably not compatible with CPU slot accelerators. But definitely a clean, modern upgrade. :)
