A500, A2000
68000 socket
  • 68020 @ 16.67 MHz, PGA
  • optional PGA FPU, no MMU
  • 1 MB RAM installed, expandable to 4 MB
  • 32 DIP sockets
  • takes 256k×4, 80 ns or faster DIPs
  • non-autoconfiguring
  • hardware maprom
  • does not support DMA to its 32 bit RAM, it affects the A590 badly - DMAfix can solve this
  • connects to the 68000 socket, the 68000 is replaced onto the board
  • 68000 fallback mode - the software can switch from 68030 to 68000 but cannot switch back, the machine has to be switched off
  • HDToolBox gets confused with the board (it works correctly in fallback mode)
  • memory is not available in fallback mode
