does anyone know what this strange little thing is inside my falcon? there is a small led connected to it too which has been fixed to the top right hand side of the casing which briefly comes on when i turn on the machine
it boosts the cpu to 32MHz.. everything the cpu can keep to itself (without access to the bus) is speeded up. for instance: number crunching, look-ups from small tables (in cache). in practice, it's only really noticable when using stzip or similar programs. on the desktop you don't really notice anything. you need a cpx to turn it on/off.
