    processor
  • 68030 @ 33 / 50 MHz, PGA
  • 68882 @ 33 / 50 MHz, PGA - clocked separately from the CPU
    memory daughterboard (68030-RAM32)
  • eight 64 pin SIMM sockets accept up to 8 or 20 MB RAM
  • supports only special 1 or 4 MB, 60 ns GVP SIMMs
  • 60 ns SIMMs are required for 50 MHz, 70 ns for 33 MHz, 80 ns for 25 MHz
  • 16 - 33 MHz boards support 1 MB SIMMs only, possible configurations are 2, 4 and 8 MB
  • 50 MHz boards support 4 MB SIMMs, possible configurations are 4, 8, 12, 16 and 20 MB
  • using a 4 MB SIMM requires four 1 MB SIMMs to be installed in sockets 3 to 6, so the 4 MB SIMMs can only be installed into sockets 7 to 10
    IDE controller
  • autoboot ROM (gvpat.device)
  • does not support drives that has more than 1024 cylinders
  • autobooting requires at least Kickstart 1.3 - the autoboot ROM should be removed with Kickstart 1.2
  • controller uses byte-swapped storaging, so the HDD will be unreadable on other controllers without that feature
  • 40 pin internal IDE header
  • A-Max II driver (gvpat.amhd) - requires gvpat.device v2.4 and A-Max v2.06

  • the memory and IDE controller is also deactivated in 68000 fallback mode
