"The RR and SuperCPU won't go together ... never - so to say :( SuperCPU avoids the RR hardware from working properly and will never really
work together. There may be a chance whenever UHS
gets finished someday ..." (Countzero)
Explanation of UHS page by Countzero: Jbevren's Page for UHS. A nice project to make a new SCSI controller, SCPU compatible and prolly with a function to load cartridge binaries and map them as real carts on the commodore

Sounds like an extremely powerful piece of hardware with an extremely stupid name. Anyway, it seems that Count Zero has done a nice job.

Name is choosen to prevent possible "trademark" issues in future. ;-)

Designing a new hardware and not making it SCPU compatible? Hmmm... I hope it at least as an OFF switch! ;) Anyway. It's a great thing for the price. Finally FLASH-ROM on the C64!
