Well, FastRam in Zorro Slot is not really fast. The FastLaneZ3 disk
controller featured 256 MB PC-SIMMs as well, but you'll get just 12 MB/s
throughput. That's slow when compared to >50 MB/s on the accel boards like
Cyberstorm and such.

An A3640 is quite slow (no local RAM onboard) whereas GVP seems not to be
used in the current m68k buildd park... although it would be nice to have 1
GB RAM, though...
