Company: Great Valley Products, US
Date: 1991
Amiga: 2000
Interface: CPU Slot
Autoconfig ID: 2017/8,9,13

Processor
68030 @ 33 / 50 MHz, PGA
68882 @ 33 / 50 MHz, PGA – clocked separately from the CPU
memory daughterboard (68030-RAM32)
eight 64 pin SIMM sockets accept up to 8 or 20 MB RAM
supports only special 1 or 4 MB, 60 ns GVP SIMMs
60 ns SIMMs are required for 50 MHz, 70 ns for 33 MHz, 80 ns for 25 MHz
16 – 33 MHz boards support 1 MB SIMMs only, possible configurations are 2, 4 and 8 MB
50 MHz boards support 4 MB SIMMs, possible configurations are 4, 8, 12, 16 and 20 MB
using a 4 MB SIMM requires four 1 MB SIMMs to be installed in sockets 3 to 6, so the 4 MB SIMMs can only be installed into sockets 7 to 10

IDE controller
autoboot ROM (gvpat.device)
does not support drives that has more than 1024 cylinders
autobooting requires at least Kickstart 1.3 – the autoboot ROM should be removed with Kickstart 1.2
controller uses byte-swapped storaging, so the HDD will be unreadable on other controllers without that feature
40 pin internal IDE header
A-Max II driver (gvpat.amhd) – requires gvpat.device v2.4 and A-Max v2.06

Notes
two ROM sockets for UNIX boot ROMs that require an A2090A SCSI controller – these ROMs are compatible with those on the A2630
the memory and IDE controller is also deactivated in 68000 fallback mode
