  • Amiga 500 - 512KB chip RAM
  • Amiga 500+ - 1MB chip RAM
  • Amiga 2000 - 512KB chip RAM, later 1MB chip RAM
  • Amiga 3000 - 1-2MB chip RAM, 1MB fast RAM
  • Amiga 600 - 1MB chip RAM

  • Amiga 4000 - 2MB chip RAM, 2-4MB fast RAM

Memory map

Address Range Size Function
000000-03FFFF 256KB 256K bytes of chip RAM
040000-07FFFF 256KB 256K bytes of chip RAM (Amiga 1000 option card)
080000-0FFFFF 512KB 512K bytes of extended chip RAM (to 1 MB)
100000-1FFFFF 1024KB 1024K bytes of extended chip RAM (to 2 MB) (on models with ECS or AGA chipsets)
200000-9FFFFF 8MB Primary 8 MB Auto-config space (Fast RAM)
A00000-BEFFFF Reserved
BFD000-BFDF00 3840 bytes 8520-B (access at even-byte addresses only)
BFE001-BFEF01 3840 bytes 8520-A (access at odd-byte addresses only)
C00000-D7FFFF Internal expansion memory (pseudo-fast, Slow RAM on Amiga 500)
D80000-DBFFFF Reserved
DC0000-DCFFFF 64KB Real time clock
DD0000-DFEFFF Reserved
DFF000-DFFFFF Custom chip registers
E00000-E7FFFF Reserved
E80000-E8FFFF Auto-config space. Boards appear here before the system relocates them to their final address.
E90000-EFFFFF Secondary auto-config space (usually 64K I/O boards)
F00000-FBFFFF 256KB 256K System ROM (Kickstart 2.0)
FC0000-FFFFFF 256KB 256K System ROM
Some special addresses:
* 000000-000100 - MC680x0 Exception Vector Assignment table  (if VBR=0)
* 000004        - Exec base (pointer to exec.library jumptable)
