Well I do not have a Nova, yet, but if it's just plain text it would scroll
as fast as in mono on a regular falcon in any colour mode. Maybe not quite
but almost.

If it's a graphics program it might not that fast as it has to copy the new
data to the graphics card and that takes time. On the other hand, the blitting
is very fast so it should still be pretty fast.

I guess someone who has got an Nova card can answer better than me.
