A600: Testing my new arrived "FuriaEC020"

Hi my friends.

Two days ago I received my very own "FuriaEC020" accelerator that was made in Slovakia by Boris Krizma (the guy who built the other accelerator that I own Furia S628).

The accelerator is a beast having:

  • An MC68EC020 CPU overclocked @ 33.33MHz
  • An 68882 FPU
  • 9.5MB of total Fast RAM
  • 32bit access
  • Features that can be enabled/disabled via software tool like ACA's ACATune named FuriaTune
This is how the accelerator looks

As the previous time, I also supported Boris with this accelerator and he again kindly put my name as well in the PCB :O

The accelerator is really well made and as you see it has a nice screws with base that prevents it from getting bent from weight. It also has a really firm socket that clips on the 68k CPU and also has lovely heatsinks both for the CPLD and the 68EC020 CPU.

To follow the whole original thread on follow this link.
Also you can download FuriaTune plus check more informational info in the dedicated webpage located in the following link.

Enough for the long talk... Time for some pr0n :)

And ofc no review can be made without the appropriate screenshots from SysInfo.

This is the ShowConfig output from OS3.9

And one last output but this time from ShowBoard of the new Boards.library that is also updated with Boboo's hardware ID for FuriaEC020.

Last but not least, I'm putting a YouTube link of a quick video that I made just some hours ago that shows a bit of the accelerator working on my spare A600.

You can download my SysSpeed modules from here if you want to make a comparison with your own accelerators:

  • ACA630/OC (37.5MHz) --> Link
  • FuriaEC020 (36MHz) --> Link

Boboo mate, great job! Keep up the good work \o/

Why is ShowConfig showing an MMU?
Does the CPLD do some MMU functions?
