More A4000 Goodies!

Thanks to a very helpful/generous friend my A4000 has become “better” and bringing it closer to a more appropriate Amithlon comparison.

What’s been added?  A WarpEngine4040 (68040 @ 40Mhz) with 128 MB ram.  The X-Surf 100 has been updated with the RapidRoad USB adapter and I have a 68060 adapter and ROMY that are next in line to be added, bringing the WarpEngine4040 to a 68060 @ ?? Mhz.  I have a Motorola 68060 Rev 6 mask 71E41J  ready to be installed and a proper custom ROM for the ROMY to allow booting with a full 68060 CPU.

Another generous friend has offered me a spare Picasso II RTG graphics card which will be used for testing/comparing against Amithlon.   Something will have to come out (Toaster (x2), Flyer, X-Surf, Picasso II) since there are only 4 slots in the A4000.  I’ll probably pull both the Toaster and Flyer (actually not even installed yet) while I conduct my comparison test between what I would consider a pretty capable Amiga A4000 and my extremely capable Amithlon system.

First I’ll have to get the A4000 recapped, WarpEngine upgraded and then start some testing.
