As far as I know its just a normal 030 CPU, so if it physically right package I assume it will be fine.
4MB STFM 1.44 FD- VELOCE+ 020 STE - 4MB STE 32MHz - STFM 16MHz - STM - MEGA ST - Falcon 030 CT60 - Atari 2600 - Atari 7800 - Gigafile - SD Floppy Emulator - PeST - HxC - CosmosEx - Ultrasatan - various clutter

Hi Exxos,

Thanks for your reply.

When I look at Falcon motherboard, the CPU printing on don't show 68030, but other part-number.
Is it a special version designed for Atari Falcon ?

Also, I was confuse with 68EC030, which is not suitable for Atari's bird (Commodore use this economic version for the A1200, 68EC020).

It's a special part number, not a special CPU. You can use a regular suitable Motorola 68030.
