View Full Version : Would this be worth a look?
10-04-2005, 02:34 PM
Just seen this (http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/AMIGA-PPC-Accelerator-Card-with-Graphics-Card_W0QQitemZ8223310404QQcategoryZ98928QQssPageNa meZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem) on Ebay, is it worth a look? I'm considering a Amiga 1200 in a tower at the moment with OS 3.9.. Is it a step in the right direction or could I do better with a faster PPC CPU? Or is that going to be hard as nails to find?
Many thanks for the help :)

I'd say go for it.
It took me a long time to find a decent and reasonably priced BPPC/BVision. It's about the same spec as that one (although I think mine's an 040/25).
Later on if you find it's not fast enough you can keep an eye out for a better one then sell this one :-)

I think this one is the 040 @ 25mhz with a 160mhz PPC card... Would the Bvision be better as a graphics card or would a Voodoo 3/4/5 spec card be best?

Yes, it looks like it is a 040@25mHz & 160mHz 603 PPC which is the slowest version available, but these cards are pretty hard to find working, specially with the BVision card. You could wait for a better card for a while, depends on how fast you want to get one.
As for the difference between the BVision and a Voodoo card, max RAM on a BVision is 8mb and you can go up to 64mb w/a Voodoo, but then you also need a PCI slot adapter like the Mediator or such.
Depends on what you want to do and how soon you want to do it.

looking at the specs at the bottom i gave a break down of the serial #. do the Cyberstorms have the same kind of codeing?
