IDE performance of the Vampire does depend on 2 things
a) on activating FASTIDE
b) on the drive you use

Here some result of a normal laptop IDE drive

But that's only for V2 with her own IDE port like the V500 or the V1200? (with non PCMCIA Core)?

Hello Mike
 
yes V500, V4 and V1200 have their own buildin Fast-IDE port.
In the latest V1200 release this port is not active.
Activating the port again is on the todo of the coming V1200 release.
 
The V600 has no fast-IDE port, but it can use the IDE port on the mainboard.
 
 
The Vampire IDE port can per default reach 10-19 MB/sec.
The reached speed is depending on the used device.
 
The theoretical maximum speed of the Vampire FastIDE port is around 30MB/sec.

Hi,
Will Amiga native IDE port speed up
after connecting V1200? Now I got
about 2MB transfer with an old 030/40
card.

Yes native IDE port speed can go up slightly.
The reason is that the 68080 is by far the fastest 68K CPU and can therefore load also from IDE fastest.

But the maximum speed you will get from the V1200 IDE port.
This V1200 port should give you over 10 MB/sec.

Thanks for answer :)
Yes, I am aware of speed of V-IDE,
but I would also like to utilize the legacy architecture of my old A1200,
not just to override everything with one expansion. I read that new core updates will be able to manage both Amiga IDE and V-IDE at the same time. So I am planning to put OS on separate Amiga IDE CF drive, and all games and data (that will utilize more speed) into separate CF drive on V-IDE.

I was wondering.

My V4 can reach ~6MB/s with `VControl ID 2 (or 3)` settings with AOS 3 ROM/OS.
I have a SanDisk Extreme 32GB UDMA 7 device.

Shouldn't I get some more?

Yes you should get over 10 MB/sec with a 32GB CF from Sandisk

Ping me on our support channel and I help you to debug this
