The Amiga PiStorm Review - (And it's not $11) - Episode 97

 This week on 10 Minute Amiga Retro Cast I am reviewing the new PiStorm open source accelerator for our A1000/A500/A2000 Amigas. Is this the Golden Goose we have been waiting for, or a big old Goose egg? Spoilers: It is somewhere in between... Join me as I talk about what's involved in setting this complicated beast up, and as I explore why it does not quite act like you think it might.

**Addendum: The CHIP RAM Speed issue looks like it was associated with a commodity loaded by Best WB - Working with one of the Devs, we came up with a few ideas, mostly related to mouse driver / middle mouse wheel driver problems. I disabled all my commodities to be thorough, and the CHIP RAM access sped up and is now only about 10% slower than normal instead of 30%. I re-enabled the commodities... And cannot recreate the problem I have been having for a week. Silly Computers... Check out the Github here for the PiStorm: How about joining the Discord Server? Meet me on the Socials!
