SuperMac Accelerator drivers


Recommended Posts

Hi All,

 

I recently picked up a SuperMac accelerator card for a Mac SE. I think the card is a 16 MHz 68000 accelerator. I’ve added some photos to show what I’ve got.

 

Does anyone have the drivers for this card or know where I could get the drivers?

 

Thanks

Leads on this are pretty cold... it's a SuperMac SpeedCard

 

Thanks to this eBay seller we know what the driver diskette looks like, and handily the front cover of the manual shows a screenshot of the System 6 control panel, indicating that the cdev is likely just called 'SpeedCard.' Perhaps they or a future buyer could be persuaded to image the diskette.

Other than that, there was mention of one in a collection here in 2007 and another on arstechnica in 2002. It's a long shot, but if you want to track them down it might still pay off...

Just got my hands on one of these NIB with disk and manual and uploaded the driver to the Garden.  The floppy disk just contains a single 13k file (the driver cdev).  I haven’t actually tested it yet (need to install the card still).  Hope it works for you!

Oh wow - thank you so much. You are awesome!

 

Any chance you can scan the user manual as well?
