Hmm and what about FastATA 4000 update?

BTW Will be there OS4 native drivers for AmigaOS4 CSPPC ???????

or we can expect the same situation like with PPC Linux (Apus)
[I hope everybody know what I am talking about, there are no drivers and probably never be...]

Hi

someone could explain me how an Apollo 1240-40Mhz can run at >10 MBsec

http://elbox.com/tests/ap40_40_fa.html

and a PPC-060@50Mhz quite a half?

http://elbox.com/tests/bppc60_50_fa.html

(same HD at PIO mode 5)

Cheers

BTW . . .it is only a mere tech question

AFAIK, PowerFlyer performances, are deeply tied to the CPU power, so i can't understand how those result is possible.

@Framiga:
Apollo boards have faster memory access than blizzard turbo boards.

I'd like to see some A4000 benchmarks. I own a CSPPC and a powerflyer and I get 6MB/s or so and I'd like to know if it's possible to get more.

@Exie:
I guess that they'll support OS4...

Hi Crumb

AFAIK, 6MBsec, is the best you can achieve with CSPPC-060 and FastATA.

A friend of mine with a CSPPC-040 and FastATA, has max 4.8 MBsec.

A very good result for the Apollo board, indeed.

Ciao

@amigarulez
Have you tried d the new device yet?
Haven't got round to it myself, not since the arrival of OS4 pre-release (been somewhat (pardon the pun) pre-occupied ).
