Retina BLT Zorro-3....does it work in Zorro-2?

Gidday.  I was wondering if anyone knew if the Z3 Retina will work
on a Z2 machine (namely, an A2000).  Obviously, it wouldn't be AS fast,
but would it be any faster than a Z2 Retina?  Also, if it does work,
I assume it will support *Gfx software...correct?

Yes, it will work in a Zorro-II slot, at Zorro-II speeds.  I have no idea if
it will run *graphx.  I would doubt it.

It is not faster, as it does not work at all. The Retina Z3 is a Zorro 3 ONLY
Board. It does not run on Zorro 2. And yes, *GraphX supports the Retina Z3.
(But you need a Z3 Amiga for it)

The Z3 Retina ? It is DEFINITELY a Z3 only Board. The Z2 Retina also works on
Z2. An the Z3 Retina (other than the Z2 one) also works under *GraphX.

You propably mean *Vision 3D? *GFX is not a card, it is software
for different gfx-cards...

OOPS....yes, that's what I meant.  The one from Phase-5.  Is the 3-D
compatible with Z2, though?  I thought that only the regular *vision
was the Z2 compatible one (or maybe both are).

Yes.

The original *vision64 board is Zorro-III only.

*vision 3D is Zorro2/3, but *vision 64 is IMHO only Zorro-3.
PicassoIV is also Zorro2/3.

1. Retina BLT Zorro 3 Graphics Card

I have just recently installed a Retina graphics card in my A3000D.
According to the advice I heve received in past posts I simply plugged
it into an available Zorro slot and started my machine.  I ran into a
problem when the machine refused to boot.  I heard a few noises like a
ram check but the machine refused to advance past that point.  I
removed the card and the machine boots properly.  Can anyone help?  I
have no manual and there is 1 jumper on the Retina that I do not know
what it is for.
