best just gets better: SPIDER software update 3.10
Elbox Computer is proud to announce
availability of a new version of the spider.device driver
for the Poseidon stack for SPIDER and SPIDER II High-Speed
USB 2.0 controllers.
This update is for SPIDER cards running AmigaOS on Mediator-equipped
Amigas or on computers running AmigaOS under the Amihlon
emulation. The new software is available free of charge
for all registered users of SPIDER and SPIDER II High-Speed
USB 2.0 controllers.
SPIDER software has been reworked in order to achieve
the maximum possible performance, especially in Amithlon
SPIDER II is the fastest and most advanced USB solution
for Amiga Classic computers. SPIDER II is the only USB
2.0-standard controller for Amiga Classic computers.
It differs from USB 1.1-controllers with support for
the High-Speed USB mode. This mode makes that USB 2.0
devices connected to the Spider cards work several times
faster than when connected to any Zorro-based USB controllers.
The SPIDER II card working under control of the spider.device
driver is also the fastest USB card for PC computers
running AmigaOS under the Amithlon emulation. High-Speed
USB 2.0 is the fastest USB standard, supporting data
speeds up to 480Mbps. That is 40 times faster than USB
1.1, making USB 2.0 ideal for external storage devices,
scanners, CD-RWs, printers, Flash card readers, and
The SPIDER II High-Speed USB 2.0 PCI controller is backward-compatible,
which means it works also with older USB 1.1 peripherals.
