68k Accelerators, FPUs and other CPUs

Over the years I have been lucky enough to pick up some 68k systems that that had accelerators installed: two MacPlus machines with Novy Quik30 Plus accelerators and a SE FDHD with a Mobius 030 SE accelerator. As I dug around the internet looking for information I found a lot of of advertisements, reviews, and some manuals and drivers for various accelerators, I also found some contact names that I used to track down old employees through LinkedIn (with some success), so I decided to create this post to track what companies I’ve found information about.

The first mention I found for memory upgrades were in June 1985 (for the 128K and 512K), and the first mention I found of an accelerator was Human Touch Computer Products Corp. Three to One Touch Board, adds a new 68000 CPU running at 12MHz and up to 3.5MB of RAM., the next was General Computer Company’s (GCC) HyperDrive 2000 in MacWorld March 1986, adds 1.5MB of RAM, a 20MB hard drive, a new 68000 CPU running at 12MHz, and a 68881 FPU, additional accelerators for 68k systems appeared in MacWorld August 1986 with reviews of products by Novy, Quesse and LevCO, if you are aware of any earlier products please let me know.

Accelerators

The following table lists the accelerators I have found listed in scans of Byte, ComputerWorld (CW), InfoWorld (IW), MacWorld (MW), MacUser (MU), or on the internet in general. In addition to the table, I have started recording information about each of the companies that produced the accelerators, specifically information about bankruptcies, sales, mergers and licensing agreements that led to the same accelerator being listed under multiple different names.

Logic board upgrades and addon cards by Apple

Manufacturers

Some additional details I found about the following manufactures: Apple, Aox, Beck-Tech, Brainstorm, Computer Sales Associates (CSA), DayStar, Dove Computer Corporation, Extreme Systems, Fusion Data, General Computer Company (GCC), Harris Performer, Irwin, Levco, Mac Advance, MacMemory, MacPeak, MacProducts, MassTech, MicroConversion, MicroMac, Mobius, Network Spacialties, NewLife/New Bridge, Novy Systems, Radius, Ryad, Siclone Sales and Engineering Corp., Spectra, Sonnet, SuperMac, Techworks, Total Systems Integration (TSI), Quesse, Warp Nine.

Apple

Apple mainly offered upgrades in the form of new logic boards for their systems, e.g. when the 512 was released you could swap out the 128’s logic board with the 512’s, etc. For now I’ve limited the list to an upgrade in the CPU.

Applied Engineering

In fall of 1991 Siclone Sales and Engineering went bankrupt and Applied Engineering took over their product line (MacWorld 1991.08)

Aox

Beck-Tech

Brainstorm

Computer Sales Associates (CSA)

DayStar Digital

DayStar Digital appears to have had a licensing agreement with Novy Systems Inc with their Max20MX being identical to the Novy Max20Mx accelerator.

    • Added, I put it under SuperMac. SuperMac bought Levco in 1987, and all the reviews I`ve found refer to it as the SuperMac SpeedCard. I’m still adding to this list as I have time. There seems to be a lot of instances where one company bought another, or licensed from another. E.g. a lot of companies seem to have licensed tech from Novy, or simply re-branded a Novy accelerator as their own. E.g. Daystar selling the Novy Mac20Mx.

    Share driver for the Mobius 30?

    • I’m using the 4.99 Mobius driver, and Compact Virtual 3.02. I plan to post an entry on my site soon for how I have this all setup on my SE sometime this winter (way to many outdoor chores at the moment). Note: You can only use up to System 7.1.3 with Compact Virtual 3.02. System 7.5.x is NOT supported. Lack of support for System 7.5.x was an issue for pretty much all of these old accelerators. That said, you can use the Mobius accelerator on the SE under 7.5.5, you will get the CPU bump (or at least I did), but will not have access to the extra memory. I need to do some more tests to see what memory is being used, the 4MB on the MB, or the first 4MB on the accelerator.
