X-MEM, a new memory expansion for all CPC.

(1/141) > >>

Hello everyone,

Like you know, I have open pre-orders about a new memory expansion for ALL CPC, some weeks ago.
The X-MEM is an all-in-one ROM/RAM board measuring the half of a 3" floppy disc!
It's compatible with the MotherX4 multi-slots. (can be used with your existing ribbon cable)

The ROM part is a flash memory than can be programmed from the CPC for adding common resident programs.
The main advantage is to allow to customize the boot by replacing the Lower/Upper ROM 0 for a full softwares compatibility.

Exemple:
- 464 with switch to BASIC 1.1 and FW3.0
- 6128 with switch to BASIC 1.0 and FW 1.0
- 6128 with switch to BASIC 1.1 and FW3.x

The RAM part is compatible with Amstrad / DK'Tronics / Dobbertin expansions.
The main advantage is to allow to handle all the PAL modes (RMR) over the 512K of memory (C0-FF).

The memory should be used as a RAM Drive C and can be shared with CP/M. (here boot from FW3.13 and CP/M ROM)

Here a video showing Discology using the X-MEM as big buffer to copy a 3"1/2 80 track floppy in one pass only.  ;D

May be...

Without surprise, you can now use SymbOS as alternative operating system on your CPC.
Sadly, SymbOS don't support the standard CP/M Ram Disc on drive C.
