    processor
  • 68020 @ 14 / 28 MHz, PGA (synchronous with the A2000)
  • optional PGA FPU (asynchronous)
    optional memory board - H2-Memory
  • 32 DIP sockets accept up to 16 MB RAM
  • possible configurations are 1, 2, 3, 4 MB with 256k×4 DIPs or 4, 8, 12, 16 MB with 1M×4 DIPs
  • DIPs must have at least 70 ns access time
  • memory does not autoconfig, software is needed
  • although the memory is mapped into the Zorro II memory space, it is not DMA-able
  • rules out other memory expansions in A2000-A
    notes
  • 68000 fallback mode
  • older revisions needed the 68000 to be removed which made the fallback mode impossible
  • the AddBuffers command in the Startup-Sequence may cause hard disk errors - the command has to be removed
  • compatibility problems with Kickstart 2.0
