Honestly.. you may be better with a 1260 $ for $
Ideally, would have love to go the 1260 path as I do have a few spare 060s laying about, but thought you had shut up shop with that design, and it was only available via invitation.

It is TF330 port, so I would guess the same?

If this is indeed not an April Fools, the timing couldn't have been better (at least not much) as my E-Matrix 1230 seems to have given up for good this time and spoiled my gaming session for tonight... If rescue comes in the form of a TF1230 (or a TFMSX, whatever comes first), nothing (except perhaps a TF1260) would make me happier :D

Another nice build!

Might have to build one, although I was hoping for a TF1260 for my second A1200. :P
Regardless, it will be fun sourcing edge connectors.

This one I look forward to, 1230 is just perfect for the A1200 I think.
I have the new edge connector that was made recently for the A1200 in my parts bin. The plan was to use them for the TF1260 but since there been some change to how this will be released to publict this TF1230 is my new hope for some open source accelerator :)

Great work TF :dualthumbup:

Wow, if this isn't an April Fools - it's great news =D

Jens has stopped shipping to the UK, apparently we aren't good enough to receive orders due to leaving the eu, sorry covid I mean (or is it both). Apparently his courier still wont ship to the UK (since December, due to covid) and he cannot be arsed dealing with the customs form.

Great :) ...is the RTC missing and why? Would be great to see the RTC on the board, it'll make the card complete :)
