Memory
Two 30 Pin SIMM Sockets For Frame Buffer Memory – 1 MB Installed As Standard, Expandable To 2 MB For Improving Special Effects
Two 64 Pin SIMM Sockets For 4 Or 8 MB Standard Zorro II Fast RAM – Accepts Only 4 MB GVP SIMMs
The Fast RAM Expansion Has Nothing To Do With The Performance Of The TBC Plus, It Doesn’T Increase The Frame Buffer Capacity – It Is Meant For A3000 And A4000 Machines Which May Have Problems With Zorro II DMA To Chip RAM
