I thought I had the latest. Do you have the 060 working yet?:).

My NOVA dies immediately after setting the 040 to use fast ram for
copyback:(. It works pretty good with the VDI on several critical
applications however (Apex being one, Phoenix and RayStart the others
for me:).

It showed up on the fr.comp.sys.atari last night on my newsserver.
Considering they wern't using NVDI, Dolmen looked pretty fast there.
The hardware didn't look much faster than my Mighty Sonic running at
40Mhz (and I posted that;). If I could run 50Mhz on that card, I
don't see any difference. I thought their web page said that they were
going to run it at 70Mhz?
