What is the difference between X10/11/12?
It is the clock multiplier, so the speed is different. x10 can be seen as ~7.14MHz x10, so x12 is about 20% faster than x10 (it will also push the hardware closer to the limits, so x10 is more likely to run stable than x12).

|Now that this core has been out for a while, a question on stability:|
I will soon be able to flash the new 2.9 core (FINALLY!) and I'm going to be running it pretty hard in my A2000 (rendering for days on end).
I was thinking it would be safest to flash the x11 core if I will be pushing it this hard, but maybe x12 is ok too - has anyone had stability issues with the x12 core?

|I've had no problems with the x12 core on my V2A600, but then as my IDE port has a couple of broken pins, i'm limited to floppy based testing - so I've probably not been able to push it as hard as needed to really make a qualifying statement in this regard.|
the x11 core on my V2+A500 has been solid as a rock so far. have had to do run constantly for a few days to get the latest Apollo/coffin from SD to IDE SSD
as for an x12 for a A500, may need someone from the Apollo team to answer than one...

|I'm using 12x on my 600 and can say that I have no issues so far.|
Works really rock stable, programming, rendering, games, Emulation. My 600 ist equipped with quite a lot of stuff with its case closed. I only applied a small copper cooler on the Cyclone and fixed the card to the 68k with that 3D Frame I found on thingiverse. Subway, A604, USB-Blaster, Cables for USB, DIGITAL-VIDEO etc. all inside. So I have a clean desk :)

|I eventually updated my Vamp 600 to GOLD 2.9 x10, but now a reset with Ctrl+Amiga+Amiga won't work anymore. Reboot by command works though. |
The thing is, I can see (LEDs) and hear ("default" drive noises) that the Amiga 600 is performing a reset, but the Vampire isn't, thus crashing the system. Only turning the Amiga off/on again works.
No problems with older versions...
