    From Gigino@80:774/68 to All on Thu Sep 3 16:25:11 2020
    Has anyone tried the NEW Ultimate 64 firmware that enables TURBO mode? I have yet to use it on the Elite because it makes use of the HIRAM and CAEC. I need those alotted for my LTK. I would like to try it on my other machine though with the Thunderdrive. I am curious to see if anyone has played with it? One person I know that has used it, said that he was able to get it up to 20MHz before the BBS started acting weird and unstable. Anyway.. just some food for thought......

    I have downlaoded it, but sadly did not have the time/motivation to install it yet .... :/

    What is your LTK???

    I have been using it since it was released.. It runs very well.. If I want to use the higher speeds I can, with my BBS I only go at 20mhz because of the software not being able to keep up with it and writing to disk at the high speed and my uIEC/SD causes corruption in the REL files when writing the records.. Otherwise, it works great...

    I still did not update :/

    Have you tried with the new hyperspeed option in the ultimate64? (so use the "internal uIEC").
    It now should also support REL files.

    I played with it for like 10 minutes but have not really worked it out.. It
    is supposed to be blazingly fast, unfortunately I run one of my BBS' on that computer and I need partition support, which at the moment it doesn't offer. There will be either Lt Kernal support or CMD support in the future but for
    now I will stick to my uIEC/SD so I can keep things seperate for my BBS.. If
    I get a bug and decide to play with the hyperspeed option I will post about it..

    I think it is an API to directly access the SD card.
    But you need a modified kernal, and your programs need to use kernal functions.
