Hi, I'm finally back on this list! I've been listening for quite some while, but now I've
got a better mail-system (and a new job).

Anyway, I've been using a small patch (wonder if it was a 7400?) for quite some
time now which give my Falcon 10% faster ST-Ram access (Compared to running
a very small mono-resolution (non-vga!)).
It will only work with graphic cards as it actually turns off the videl completely.
The way I did it was by and'ing the system clock to the videl with a on/off line, the
very same line I use with my NOVA/Videl-switch. So, when the NOVA is on, the
videl gets the system-clock and'ed with 0 (zero). This way, the videl stops using the
st-bus, and I get faster st-ram access, faster ide-drive access and faster
When/if I get my NOVA-switch web-page ready, I'll make a description of this patch
I have some nembench-results if there's any interrest...
