FURIA Amiga 600 accelerator
FuriaEC020 is an accelerator card for Amiga600 computers designed by Boris Krizma (Slovak Amiga HW developer) It's equipped with CPU Motorola MC68ec020/25 (OC33) MHz and FPU Motorola MC68882/40 MHz, and with onboard 9.5 megs of fast memory. The quick access to the memory makes this little card a real monster, as it makes the Amiga more than 10 times faster, than the original Amiga600.
The card has also ability to map rom into the fast ram, tested are roms 256 kB, 512 kB and also 1024 kB. The card also supports for Amiga600's IDE port speedup. The card is easily controlled by tool furiatune (written by Martin Kuchinka.To support inboard PCMCIA port, If you need to remove 4 megs of the fast memory press Control+Amiga+Amiga for 3 seconds.

- Furia accelerator card - RED PCB
- fitting poles included - may need lenght adjustment (sockets on Furia are heavy duty - different than other cards use, if you fit furia on cpu, you will be able to lift amiga holding furia in your fingers)
- in order to obtain highest compatibility, original CPU by Motorola and DRAM CHIPS were used. Chips are non produced nowadays but never used. Type used may vary
- Every card is tested with MBR2 test for 2 hours with heastsing covered
- Furia needs really fast Compact Flash card to work properly, or AmSider + SD ADAPTER device or a 44 Pin Disk-On-module
options at checkout; both fully compatible with FURIA.

- Maprom function
- PCMCIA friendly
- HIGHEST QUALITY PLCC bottom socket - stable and solid FIT (AMPHENOL) - high temp resistant

ReviewsTodd SunderlinGreat card so far! Didn't like my CF card at all (I knew it was picky, just wanted to try it anyways). Got a black screen on first boot, but just turns out alcohol isn't enough to clean the stock CPU of oxidation. Contact cleaner did the trick. Installation itself is a little scary as it needs more pressure than felt comfortable to seat it. Workbench is very snappy, and so far everything is working. Might look into a fan, as it gets a pretty warm.Stephen R. Bruce
I like the card but it can be a PITAFirst let me tell you I do like the card. When you buy the card it has no documentation on how to use it or how to work around issues you may encounter or any real recommendations as to why cards are known to work well with the Furia. Even here at ATOL they do mention you need to have a fast card. So I chose to install this in a recently recapped A600. I installed the AMSIDER & SD Card Adaptor. The A600 has the 3.1.4 ROM and I installed OS3.1.4 and after the installation the A600 would not reboot properly and it hung while accessing the SD Card. It did the same while accessing a CF card. Yea I cried! To get past this issue I disabled the CPU CACHE in the early boot screen on the Amiga. To get to this screen you need to hold down both mouse button's and turn the Amiga on then select BOOT and check the box that disables CPU Cache. Then exit that screen and continue to boot the Amiga and she will boot without issue. If while setting up the Hard Drive File System Block Size greater than 512 to say 4096 per Hyperions own recommendations for setting up a larger than 4GB Partition Size for systems with limited RAM the issue will appear on the first reboot. This will not happen if you just leave everything at 512 and change it after you finish installing Workbench after which the reboot issue will show its ugly face. I saw another person had the same issue and he did exactly what I did but for some reason he also had to disable CC0 so keep that in mind should it apply to your configuration. Having said all that I would still recommend the FURIA. Its faster than my ACA620EC and as fast if not faster than my A2000 with an A2630. I have a 1200 but I am looking to expand that down the road. The added RAM is a welcome site to the A600. I do recommend you obtain FuriaTune or FuriaTuneGUI. Although FuriaTuneGUI will thow out an error with the SetPatch during boot up which will cause a delay with booting but this will not occur with an older version of the Amiga OS. I can't comment on how well it works with WHDLOAD because I have not yet installed it on the A600 with the Furia yet. The cards I am using with all my Amiga are San Disk. Just make sure the card you get are not formatted exFAT, while you can convert them to FAT32 there is no real guaranty they will work. I tested out the fastest SD Card I had which is a 64GB card which is rated at speeds upto 170 MB/s. I had to convert the card to FAT32 which only allowed me 32 GB Partition Sizes but the A600 would never see the card.. All my other cards are between 80-100 MB/s. I believe the issues I have mentioned only occur with 3.1.4 so if you using an older version of Workbench then you may not encounter the boot issues I did but I intend on testing that out myself just so I know for sure.Willie
ReviewIt is Red in color. It installed very easily. The speed is very fast. I'm using Classic WB ADVSP, and it runs great on my A600. Remember to get a 90 degree IDE adapter, if you have a CF card.
