Agnus socket
 
  • 1 MB chip RAM expansion
  • plugs into the Agnus socket
  • Agnus is replaced with Super Agnus (8375) which allows a total of 2 MB chip RAM
  • an adaptor board plugs into the Gary socket
  • allows the use of trapdoor memory expansions larger than 512 kB, but needs another Gary adaptor in this case
  • three variants:
    • compact one for use in A2000 / A500
    • two bigger low-profile ones, which allow the use of internal A500 processor cards - these two differ only in their Agnus connector, as some A500 motherboard revisions have their Agnus socket rotated by 90°
