The 68040 is a horrible CPU. Its 5V, overheats and goes nuts if its not started up correctly.

The later L88M mask versions run almost cold at 40MHz

None of my boards support 040. I have no interest in them. I'm going to move to developing an FPGA core for the TFx60s when the 060s completely dry up. This is why the TF1260 has a completely 3.3v socket and no 5v at all there.

This is a vendor to avoid, selling RC060 at premium price and i get it and its an LC i have put in a refund request with Ebay even though he states no refunds hes selling fakes, AVOID. posting to hopefully save someone else from this. I don't mind paying the money if its what its suppose to be but i'm not going to pay that amount for a fake. stay tune for the update on ebays response lol

I think nobody can view that link but someone logged in as you - it says “you can’t view these order details’. Can you just name the seller?

would that be an FPGA board that plugs into an 040/060 socket? - like the ReAgnus but for the CPU, as that'd be an amazing market. then anything, warp engines, cyberstorms, blizzards, even an A3640 would be able to get in on this.

soldered previous CPU dependent of course. both my 040 equipped blizzards are soldered :roll: :lol:

I've been in the market for 060's for a while, but now... nope... i'm stuck with a rev6 i got from amikit and a pair of tested good rev5's i got from ebay - YEARS ago. These days, i wouldn't even try unless it was from any of the guys on here or known guys on amibay...

I think this would be the greatest project ever. Full Rev6 060s are close to depletion, prices have skyrocketed already, and all the new boards are going to be sold without an 060, possibly reducing a lot the interest in them (or making them way more expensive than they could have been).

Whereas a FPGA core would provide way more reliable hardware, built in 2020, more features, speed, and probably cost the same if not less.
I'd make a Kickstarter out of it. Perks: once the core is done, a socket + CPU to all backers :mrgreen:

No i'll never do a kickstarter.. It puts me under too much pressure and its not like i need money.

is there any 060 FPGA core around?

Not open source.
