Will the CyberStorms support 1GB of memory??  I mean, that's only around $750, ya know :)

Before anyone says anything snide, I do lament that things have to be so pricey for our beloved hobby.  But then, how many loves are inexpensive? heheheh  I am pretty happy to see new things like this come out for Amiga, even though I will not be affording one for a while. :)

Heh, if only it was possible :). The Cyberstorm boards are limited to 128MB as that's the memory window available to CPU Boards on the A3000/A4000 fast slot.

Can't wait to get my ZorRAM now they are available. Ordered mine just after they were announced. Been very patient :)

The ZorRAM product ID is listed on the product page on our webstore

ZorRAM is compatible with the Cyberstorm but we have only tested 2x cards with it so far..

However, just out of curiosity, we previously tested 4x ZorRAM 256MB installed together with a 4060T accelerator (68060) with 128MB SIMM memory- here is the result:

I can't see anywhere the name of the manufacturer on any of the product announcements or threads...?

In the meantime I will use AmigaKit as the manufacturer. http://amigan.1emu.net/reg/manuf.html has been updated accordingly.

Hint: decimal 3643 is 0x0E3B in hexadecimal. :-)

Could well be that you have to correct you database once more (amiga.resource.cx has a nice database for manufacturer numbers).

Bustest depends strongly on the CPU card being used. 030 cards are usually faster on Zorro III, as no mapping logic is needed, 040 and 060 cards are ways slower.

ZorRAM compares to the DKB3128, the limit for both read and write accesses is somewhere around 13.5MB/s - measured with DENEB operating as DMA master from/to ZorRAM (DENEB DMA state machine is fast, the limit is here mainly the rising edge of /DTACK, which is awfully slow due to the pullup structure of that signal, increasing the waiting phase between two DMA accesses).

On 030 systems you will end up with PIO rates of 12MB/s write and 9MB/s read, while 060 based systems (which usually have 128MB of really fast on-CPU-card memory) values of 10MB/s write and 7MB/s read can be expected. Your mileage may vary.
