ZorRAM – Zorro 3 Memory for Amiga 3000 and 4000

On July 7, 2010 I received two ZorRAM cards in the mail from AmigaKit!

ZorRAM

ZorRAM

The ZorRAM is a 128MB or 256MB Zorro 3 memory expansion for Amiga 3000 or 4000 computers.  It is a entirely new design featuring modern technologies.  Compatible with AmigaOS 2.0, 2.1, 3.0, 3.1 and the new AmigaOS 4.1 Classic.

The ZorRAM is a really amazing piece of technology that easily adds either 128MB or 256MB of memory to your Amiga 3000 or 4000.  It’s really great for AmigaOS 4.1 Classic users as it gives you extra breathing room.  It is supported out-of-the-box with AmigaOS 4.1 Classic for use as a hardware memory paging file.   Worth owning!
