Yes. Kickstart 1.3 (and below) is 128K x 16bit = 256K Kickstart 2.04 (as used in A500 and A2000's) 256K x 16bit = 512K Note: Kickstart 2.05 was created because the A600 needed bootcode for its IDE and PCMCIA > > > Thus an A1200 has a data path twice as wide (32) and twice as fast > > (14Mhz) as A500-A1000-A2000 models, but still 512Kbyte. > > Only the Kickstart 3.2 of the Walker prototype was 1Mb, I think. Alas, No. The prototypes used regular A1200 Kickstarts, i.e. 3.0-3.1. Mostly because Guru Olaf Barthel had'nt completed his OS work at the time the Walkers were in active development. Mazet still displays one (with the "helmet" chassis) in their company lobby. Petro has the Walker prototype seen at the Amiga shows (a well deserved trophy for him!). Most "Walker prototypes" are printed circuit boards with hacks and sockets all over them, not display or production models. I have actually gone over the design (touched&tested) of the Walker prototypes at the company location in Erfurt E. Germany. This I know because I worked at Amiga Inc. as HW engineer, and worked some in Germany.
