Amiga 1200 upgrading: ACA 1230/56

The ACA 1230/56 accelerator card comes with a full 68030 CPU (clocked at 56 MHz, MMU included) and 64 MB of RAM, making it the beast choice to turn your stock A1200 into a lightning-fast retro demo/gaming machine.

Specs:

  • CPU 68030 @ 56 MHz
  • 64 MB RAM
  • MapROM function
  • PCMCIA-friendly

16/02/2011 – Update:

Today i have received the card from Individual Computers (via Alinea Computer). The performance of the card is really astonishing by showing in SYSINFO a score of 11.683 Dhrystones, a 68030 running @60.50 Mhz.

It was Plug and Play, this time…  don’t forget to download the ACAtune Took.

Unfortunately the ACA 1230 RTC kit (which is: chip OKI 6242B and Battery CR-1220) was not directly available, which will be very soon.

    Hi there!

    That looks like a nice turbo-card. I’ve got an on old 68030-40MHz from Apollo myself, but it isn’t near as fast as this one.. I notice that it scored 11.6 MiPS in SysInfo.. a very good result. My Apollo almost reaches 8 MiPS if I remember correctly. 🙂 Are you happy with the board?

    Best regards,
