a STe only upgrade and uses a 68020 clocked at 16MHz. The board also includes
0, 2 or 4M of FastRAM and TOS 2.06. The board itself uses a 32 bit data bus
giving around 21Mb per second data access, rather than the usual 4Mb/s on
a regular STe.
My system has 2M FASTRam (giving a total of 6M). I also have a small switch
on the side of the STe which switches the accelerator on or off. In benchmarks
(GEMBench) the Veloce gives around 1.5 x Falcon CPU speed at 640x480x2.
The great thing with the Vecloce is it can fit inside a regular STe case, and there
was an additional add on which let you add an IDE drive interface plus a small
2.5" IDE drive - again all inside the regular case Pretty neat at the time.
