ROAM copies the ROM into RAM, and then causes the ROM memory to be accessed from the RAM based copy instead of from the actual ROMDIMM. This has the potential of speeding up PowerMacintoshes that do not already map ROM into RAM.Machines ROAM does not work on (or not well on): iMacs (comes with ROM in RAM functionality) Blue & White G3s (comes with ROM in RAM functionality) 6100/66 Macs. It is possible that they would benefit _IF_ the system bus speed was increased. It seems like the ROM DIMM is faster than RAM on these machines. 7200's. PowerPC upgraded 680x0 Macs. Your milage may vary.
