If their card can't use more than 128 mb ram and is limited to propietary memory modules they should redesign it so that it already includes a chip with 128 mb ram (and maybe use newer/cheaper DDR ram).
Their last A2000 boards were able to use 72 pin SIMM modules as far as I know... Surely it would be much nicer to have SDRAM, but I think it would require a major redesign.

Why the GVP-m's accelerators can't have more than 128 MB of memory? Is it because of the memory modules (GVP-SIMMs)?
I have never ran out of memory on my 128MB, why the heck would i need more??? :-P

It only seems to be '030s for us poor 1200 users
GVP 4.13 latest version of ROM? haha.
actually its 4.15. I guess they did not pay license to Mr Babel?
I'm sure those prices will be "adjusted" for inflation if they get new stock. Small production runs (<1000) don't result in discount prices, as much as we'd all like to see.

as far i recall from certain threads on a1k.org the adress space of a4k/a3k cpu slot is limited to 128mb. well. i have no technical understanding to fully comprehend what that means, but from what ive read there i assume one could put more ram on an accel but probably some workaround woud be needed. a1200s are another issue since the accel will be connected to another bus so paradoxically you can have 265mb on a blizzard. tough world.

Check the Software Hut site. They are listing the accelerators (A2000, A4000 & A1200) video card (spectrum) and 4Mb AND 16Mb GVP SIMMs.
Prices aren't bad at all!
Looks like I'll have to buy another A2000....
