Kickflash OS4 is a Zorro card and can be used in any Amiga system with
Zorro-II or Zorro-III slots. The basic version comes with 1 MB of Flash
memory (the Flash memory can be upgraded up to 1 GB).
Data transfer rates are comparable to the transfer rates of common
hard disk drives. The access times of Flash memory are, opposite to
those of mechanical devices, practically zero: with random access the
so-called Solid State Memory is about 10,000 times faster than a hard
Kickflash reduces the boot time of classic Amigas dramatically, because
it gets rid of all the reboots that today's Amigas have to do. ROM updates,
every resident-capable program, Blitzkick modules and tools like PrepareEmul
can be stored in the 1 MB flash memory. They are executed without reboots
on a cold start of the Amiga.
