Hi,
Are there any options to extend chip ram in Amiga 1000 without daughterboard?

The only one is the Rejuvinator board, there is no other option like the 500/2000 have.

That lack of chip-RAM expandability is perhaps the main reason that the 1000 couldn't keep pace with the other Amigas. I'm reasonably sure that the only way to add more chip ram was to replace a big chunk of the system, either with the Expert Rejuvenator NTSC daughterboard, the Phoenix 1000 replacement motherboard, or the GBA1000 replacement motherboard.

I've found this project https://forum.icomp.de/index.php?thread ... 60#post460. It seems it will solve all problems with A1000 expansion. Can't wait for it to be available.

Agree with Signman... It's been six years since that was announced. iComp was also supposed to do an A1200 remake, called the A1200 Reloaded. It was announced close to 10 years ago and never came into being. He had a huge stockpile of customs for it. The community beat him to it with the A1200 ReAmiga clone board (among other models) so he sold sold off almost all of his remaining customs, it seems.
