New heights of A500/A2000 :-)

119Mhz - Is 16X clock standard, or relative to 060?
SysInfo is currently 117+ MIPS and 64MFLOPS
AGA is there and all caches :-)

2MB Chip Ram and 128MB Fast Ram... So it isn't final stage prototype...

I suppose 512mb edit is just larger chips on board and patching mapROM /Vampire ROM. It might even be card now has 512mb and only 128mb is visible (system detectable).

Wow 119Mhz!!

It is probably too soon to ask about the memory bandwidth? The 512MB isn't showing up either. I presume this is one of the next items on the to-do list.

Nice to see the board running well in both A500 and A2000.

Its just a first contact. Memory bandwith should increase with faster RAM, we will see test results when done :-) v2 was already a champ.

2MB chip should not be of much worry, as soon fastmem will be mappable as chipram (that was promised) so you will be able to select how much chip you wish to dedicate. Another nice SAGA feat.!

The 512MB is on the board but not all is enabled yet.
