Info:

The Turbo Master CPU was an early CPU accelerator for the Commodore 64 and quite probably the first to have commercial success. It predated the Super CPU by several years. It came in two versions one with JiffyDOS and one without. RUN Magazine featured an in-depth article about the accelerator.

Special provision was made to ensure that the accelerator was fully compatible with GEOS, including the RAM expansion unit Geo RAM.
