I'm curious if anyone has or has seen a Quadra 605 PDS L2 cache module in real life.  I'm not sure how common these things are.  If anyone has one or has photos of one, I'm very interested in looking at the cache chips on the module to see what speed they are to determine if the module would function on a 33MHz bus.  There's long been suggestion that this module *might* work on a LC 575 board, potentially making for an interesting CC Mystic upgrade: http://colourclassicfaq.com/mobo/mystic.shtml#Q2.1.10



Edit: also, I've read anecdotes about a LC PDS cache module as well as the Micromac CPU socket solution.  I'm not sure if the PDS slot module references are misunderstandings due to the the CPU socket cache module physically blocking the PDS slot or if there is/was a PDS L2 cache module.  In any case, I'm interested in learning about either module.

That FAQ item is referring to this:



Which are "slot free" cache cards designed to be plugged into the CPU socket, not the PDS slot. I think any suggestion that there was a PDS cache card that worked with the "LC" Quadras is the result of confusion. (Micromac's own page is all confuddled about their product; the photo is of their IIci PDS card and I think the text is in part a badly-edited copy-paste of its product page.)
