This module for AIBB 6.5 has been done with an Apollo 1240/40MHz with SCSI
module, 8 Meg FAST RAM, and (VERY IMPORTANT) FastExec installed.

Compare  it  with  the  original  Apollo_1240_40.lha  archive  uploaded by
Thorsten.Schneider at t-online.de.  Because of a "bug" of the Amiga 1200, the
Supervisor  Stack  Pointer (SSP) remains in CHIP memory even when you have
true  FAST  memory. Because the FPU of the 68040 uses A LOT the Supervisor
Stack  Pointer,  the FPU intensive programs run a lot slower on the Apollo
1240 than they could.

With  FastExec  installed (util/batch/Fast_Exec.lha by Harry Sintonen) the
BeachBall  test  runs  3  times  faster,  and FPU intensive programs (like
Lightwave  and  Imagine) run between 2 and 3 times faster. Quite nice just
for a 960 bytes patch. In fact, compared to the actual speed in the Apollo
1240,   Lightwave   runs  only  30%  faster  in  the  Blizzard  1260  with
Cyberpatcher  installed  (and  this  is  TRUE,  since  I  had  to  make  a
comparative  report  between  M-TEC  1230/42MHz, Apollo 1240/40MHz, Apollo
1260/50MHz and Blizzard 1260/50MHz for my job :-)
