ACA-1231/42

Amiga 1200 Accelerator Card w/ 68030 CPU incl. MMU

The new ACA-1231/42 offers everything a retro gamer wants:

Speed:
Although the ACA-1231/42 features less MHz than the Blizzard 1230-IV card (42 MHz** vs. 50 MHz), it actually achieves more MIPS (Million Instructions per Second). The reason for this efficiency is the high clock speed of the on-board memory (25 x 3.333 MHz).

Memory Aplenty:
The ACA-1231/42 comes with 64 MB RAM, 1 MB of which are reserved to map the Kickstart into the fast memory. With Kickstart 3.1*** there are 63 MB FastMem available to applications when you switch the A1200 on (1 MB is always located at address 0x00C00000 to gain compatibility with old or badly programmed software).

On Time:
The ACA-1231/42, unlike its predecessor ACA-1230, always comes with an RTC (Real Time Clock) chip installed. You only have to add a battery.

Hardware Compatibility:
The ACA-1231/42 is more tolerant towards different revisions of the A1200 board then the ACA-1230 was.

Software Compatibility:
The ACA-1231/42 sports a fully featured 68030 processor, which also includes a functional MMU (Memory Management Unit). The MMU can not only be used to map a Kickstart ROM image to FastMem, it's also crucial for WHDLoad. The ACA-1231/42 is 100% compatible with WHDLoad!

Nice Price:
South of 1,500! ****

* The image shows a pre-production card, the final version looks slightly different.
** The exact clock speed is 41.6625 (25 x 3.333/2) MHz.
*** Kickstart 3.0 users must add the memory with the ACATune software.
**** TD SCNR :)

too in love with my Blizzard 030@50 to take her out of my 1200 but this is definitely a great replacement in case she breaks

Commiserations. Been there, it's rough but gets better. Hope partner ok.

I look at this, about 250 dollars for a 42mhz cpu to go in an almost 20 year old computer and think how crazy it is.  But I still want one.  What is it about the Amiga?  It's like a disease or something.

What a nice little accelerator board. To bad the designer can't figure out how to add FPU support at very low cost and without any significant loss of performance. I guess we all have our limitations.

Guess i will get this version next. Had the old ACA for a week or something regret i sold it :-D
