Up today is my beloved Marpet M1207 accelerator.

This card is a basic accelerator to fit the Commodore Amiga 1200. It includes a SIMM slot for up to 8MB RAM, a PLCC socket for a floating point unit as well as a battery-backed real time clock circuit.

This particular example already has an 8MB SIMM installed, has had a battery installed recently, and is equipped with the optional Motorola 68882 33MHz FPU and oscillator.

The only thing that's been a niggle over the years is to do with the Amiga itself, the PCMCIA slot's memory addresses are located just above the 4MB address space - so if you have 8MB fitted, this generally knocks out the PCMCIA slot, unless you have a full CPU accelerator. Luckily, the M1207's jumpers face down when the card is installed, so you can jumper between 4MB and 8MB as required to switch from having a working PCMCIA slot for networking, or the full enchilada 8MB RAM.

I bought this card back in 2002 and was rapt with the improvement it made to my otherwise stock Amiga 1200. WHDLoad titles work properly, and not resetting the clock every boot is pretty handy too.
