No. It's actually the other way around, as the AB reduces the
performance on the "ST"-bus.

There's no problems with Videlity on the AB, which basically is the
same as screenblaster. But if you can find a Nova (perhaps Homa
Systems have some left) then buy one, it's excellent.

A Nova with VRAM can run e.g. 1024x768 in 16 or 24 bits, and still be
a lot faster than the Videl in 16 colours.
