The new X-Surf 100 is a networking card for all Amiga computers with Zorro slots. In an A2000 or Zorro-daughterboards for the A1200, it will run at Z2 speed. If installed in an A3000, A4000 or the respective tower versions, it will run at Z3 speeds, which is up to five times faster than Z2.
Transfer rates of over 1600kBytes/s have been measured with the X-Surf-100. Please note that the classic Amiga architecture and the current TCP/IP stacks for the Amiga don't allow saturating a 100MBit Ethernet link. Performance in your system may be slower due to CPU performance and programs running in multitasking.
Please note that we cannot guarantee the X-Surf-100 to work in third-party Zorro boards as used in tower conversions, such as boards made by Eagle, Mikronik, RBM or Elbox. The X-Surf-100 may or may not work in these boards. Although the bus interface is designed to tolerate many mistakes that the vendors of those third-party boards have made, we can only guarantee proper operation in original Commodore daughterboards. Further, Z3 computers MUST have the Buster-11 chip installed.
Owners of the Merlin graphics card must have the latest hardware patches installed. Owners of the Mediator PCI/Zorro daughterboard must close the "swap" jumper.
The driver for the networking card find you at Icomp driverpages
