Don't think so. Even those cables are getting a bit hard to find these days :(

Been on the hunt for replacement cartridge connectors.. These came this morning.. 2mm.. not right angle.. they almost fit as well :roll: problem is the connector doesn't have much "edge room" so the cards don't fit because they are basically 1 or 2mm to wide :(

EDIT:

They do actually seem to fit though with a bit of a shove.. hmm...

Those look familiar. Must remember to test mine, it's been fixed but since then I've been busy on the H4
If it ain't broke, test it to Destruction.

Thanks to Icky, we have a render on how this will look :)
So this board is no bigger than the 68K CPU. Also stackable without using much additional height. This board can be driven with any up coming items, mostly flashy-clock to start with. Then we will finally have some proper benchmarks in GB6 for alt-ram tests :)

Is there any more info about this?
Falcon, TT & some more
