Default GVP Series-II card in a A3000.. How much RAM performance hit?

Hi,

Title says it all. I have no accelerator in my A3000 and can't source affordable ZIP so I was wondering if using my Series-II card with 8mb would be a workable alternative for now. At least I could move my FastRAM dips to max my chipmem out.

Thanks,
Tim

Expect for a slower machine in the near future.

It works? Of course it will. But Zorro II memory is dead slow compared to onboard faster (treated as Z-III) memory.

The GVP SCSI is way better than original C=, that's the only point in using a GVP HC+8.

lol. sure it will work. however the extra money for ZIP memory is worth the extra significant speed. :-D

I have seen on ebay and maybe on here before a simm>A3000 convertor, allowing you to plug into the zip sockets and has a couple of simm slots on top.


edit: pics

looks like DJbase on here makes them.

Really? Better than the A2091, granted, but as a Zorro II card in an A3000?
