Good after having developed the idea that this great hardware innovation (Video Card ZZ9000) is much more than what I was looking for to seriously resume a certain activity on a system that for better or for worse has remained outside the rules of the market and fashions, I decided, so sold my CyberVisionPPC of Phase5 with a little fear I admit it, I stayed with the AGA.
A few moments before opening my Amiga 4000 to uninstall the CyberVision PPC I then removed the CyberGraphX monitor from devs / monitor and put in place the PAL and Multiscan monitors and all the innovations introduced for the AGA chip, so I modified the ScreenMode settings by setting it to PAL interlaced. At the first reboot with PAL monitor I suffered a rapid exhaustion of the chip memory but then removing the backgrounds from the WB and from the windows at the end I recovered what is necessary to navigate and work without major problems. Immediately after unpacking the CyberGraphX drivers I was able to finally load the new intuition.library supplied on OS 126.96.36.199. I have therefore experienced that yes, now the windows can be moved comfortably out of the WorkBench, and furthermore there is a greater general speed in the response to the design of icons and windows, which I suppose is due to the ram mapping (Fast) of the Rom. our dear old ROMs in fact, a term that today has been improperly swept away but that once meant Read Only Memory, have an access speed ranging from 200 to 160 nanoseconds compared to 60/70 of the CyberStormPPC simm memories, so it is natural to note a small sprint and for those who have a lot of RAM maybe remap the roms always agrees in any case as well as having them installed on the MainBoard.
Some tests always carried out under AGA have shown me how even network performance drops sharply when we use 8bit AGA instead of a video card. In download on Amiga from PC the difference in performance is also visible by simply iconifying the RC-FTP server with a difference of at least 100kb / s! Tests performed on AGA with 8bit WB on Multiscan screen while if I reduce the color depth the differences disappear or at least I didn't notice it. This also explains why it is difficult / impossible to render complex web pages in a context where bandwidth and room for maneuver have remained simply those of 30 years ago. But today the ZZ9000 could simply revolutionize everything! Just think of the two integrated Cortex A9 coprocessors to fantasize about a browser with html & css hardware acceleration!
The old CyberVisionPPC had 8MB of RAM and could generate screens up to 1280 x 1024 at 32bit or 1600 x 1200 at 24 bit without considering the speech of the Refresh video, this once, it was fundamental to have a stable image on a good monitor that he had to compose it by shooting a zig-and-zag beam of electrons over the entire surface as quickly as possible. Well today all this is no longer needed, today a data stream is enough to be able to pilot the level of "optical filling" produced by the liquid crystal quickly enough, each bit simply has to get in its place and that's it, the hard times of the tube are finished forever. If I'm not mistaken the CyberVisionPPC was the most powerful video card for Amiga ever produced and with more memory on board than any other card for any Amiga model, at least until today! With the birth of the ZZ9000 in this 2019 many limitations and obsolete technologies are overcome by bringing the classic Amigas to a level of performance that ... we will experience very soon! In any case, all ZZ9000 owners will be able to open the fantastic WorkBench in FullHD at 1920 x 1080 on a beautiful LCD and then we'll see some really good ones! Then finally we will understand what we can do with that beautiful Giga DDR3 RAM in the card!
