The current Cyclone III used on the 500/600 series does not have PCIe support. The upcoming V1200 and stand-alone models appear to be incorporating the Cyclone V which does have PCIe support. Having said that, there is a lot of water to flow under the bridge before an expansion bus is supported. I b...

Yes... basically picking back up from where C= and M dropped the ball. :)

Might be hard getting to that speed. The chip is 10Base-T only. :)

Of course that assumes you don't "upgrade" to one of the 10/100 flavours.

Hello! 400KB/s is pretty good! Anything beyond that is a bonus. :)

Thanks for the info. Would an expected throughput of around 8 Mbit/s be reasonable? Its big brother (424J600) is rated at 14Mbit/s through SPI but that is a 10/100 chip.

Have a great day.

Hey Bax very cool! Nice work. Love the humour. :)

What sort of raw throughput is this capable of? I presume the SPI interface is the limiting factor? Does that scale with Vampire system clock speed?


Cheers!

It looks to me like it should be closer to the motherboard. Otherwise that little notch in the socket for the resistor is rather pointless. I know other users have had trouble pushing it all the way down.

Some of the FPU instructions were exposed in silver 9. Newer core revisions pulled the instructions out.

Standard Sysinfo has a bug with any CPU without an FPU. There is a patch on aminet at: util/moni/SysInfo40_noFPU.lha Here is the blurb from the readme: SysInfo 4.0 has a bad bug on 680x0 CPU without FPU (i.e. 68EC040, 68EC060, 68LC060). It still tries to trigger FPU and end with a crash. This patch ...
