Ok so the Tf536 issues are diminishing fast.

I had caches off on the stream yesterday. With them on and burst on I get 16.5 times a stock Amiga and 5mb/s ide speed.

Time to let the beta testing guys have a go

You could also use the 68030 CPU with TQFP Package like in TT or Falcon used, ... in my TT it is running with 54Mhz.. so its overclockable. What i saw is that the cpu in TQFP Package is overclockable. Its a ceramic package..

The RC and RP 030 PGA chips are pretty overclockable too. The 33's easily go to 50, and I think the 40s and 50s can go way past 50mhz, but I think the problem is that going that fast on a TF board wouldn't be worth it unless the ram could take advantage of it?

That's my understanding anyway.

Those ceramic TQFPs look really awesome... i think it'd be hard to find them for sale though!

TQFP packages arent something i'm interested in. Cant swap em and cant put the LA on them.

nor am i interested in allowing any overclocking.. the TF536 is fixed at 50Mhz just like the TF330. If you want more speed wait for the TF360 and possibly a TF560 to follow it.
