Sadly re-opening has now been postponed. Read More >>>

RamTurbo Interface

The Ram Turbo Interface (also known as the Spectrum Turbo Interface) was an expansion unit for the Spectrum. The 9-pin joystick ports supported two Sinclair-compatible joysticks, or in an alternate mode Kempston and Protek/Cursor joysticks (left/right ports respectively). It accepted ROM cartridges in the hidden top expansion slot. The expansion bus was passed through to the rear of the unit so additional interface modules could be connected.

The RamTurbo interface retailed for £22.95.
