(but a 1M KS would be hackable when its available!) The 3.1 kickstart is also 512K. The cool feature being that the datapath to the roms is 32bits wide! Kickstart being spread accross 2 x 128K x 16bits chips = 512K. Thus an A1200 has a data path twice as wide (32) and twice as fast (14Mhz) as A500-A1000-A2000 models, but still 512Kbyte.
