Ok so update...

I'm sick in bed with a cold and i've run out of netflix so i'm routing boards.

1. TF536 rev 2 is done and ordered.
2. TF360 rev 2 is done and ordered.

Next...

3. CD32 Riser updates....
4. TF1260 review.

if we stay in lockdown for ages i'll do a TF4060. I'd generally recommend Matze's 3000 card though. MIne is going to be a fever driven port of the TF360.
Hope you get better soon!

We are also in Covid-19 lockdown here, with schools and daycares closed and going out of our mind.

Currently reading 'Commodore: The Final Years' - very interesting, especially bits about designing PCBs and add-ons. TerribleFire's turn around time would have opened a few eyes back in the day :)
Is Supaduper ok? Mark not posted for a while.

Yep all good as Steve says :). I have just been busy doing stuff in the garden as I am sick of weeding lol, so put a membranee so that should stop the barstewards, and I have lots of components ready for any builds and of course I still knock out the successful TF330 !

I really cant find much info about Matze's 3000 card... where to buy, the cost, etc. ?

Not sure any of that is going to be available soon. I think @8 Bit Dreams builds Matzes stuff from time to time.

This is all I can find about a "Matze 3000" card, appears to be for the A4000 too
https://www.a1k.org/forum/index.php?threads/73349/

He's posted a schematic which is nice :)

Sorry if this is off-topic, I'm loving reading the progress TF!

A little off topic but relevant. Maybe start a new thread for that board. I figured it will work real nice when its out but worry about cost as usual with Amiga things. Nothing to do with Matze's work.. just how it goes. I see a A3660 for sale on ebay for £400+...

Hi there,
I am new to this forum but have been following it for some time.
with regards to an accelerator for the A3/4000 would it not be possible to use an adaptor for the TF330/360 to be used?
please don't bash me with a stick if this is a daft question.
