Primary Effect: +3 bonus to Intelligence
Secondary Effect: +1.5% bonus to CPU and capacitor recharge
Implant Set Effect: 40% bonus to the strength of all Genolution implant secondary effects
This is the second half of the Core Augmentation implant set, delivered by Genolution as a follow-up to the CA-1 just months after their first demonstration of new augmentation techniques shook up the often-stagnant industry.
The CA-2 picks up where its predecessor left off, providing a dual boost via frontal lobe enhancements and a neocortical modification that complements the CA-1's focus on a captain's ship-fitting concerns. The end result is an increase to intelligence, coupled with improved CPU output and capacitor recharge rate. Additionally, when combined the CA-1 and the CA-2 supplement each other, providing vast increases in their overall net effect.
Concurrent with the release of the CA-2, Genolution offered up the implant's schematics for public inspection. They claimed the move was designed not only to allay any lingering fears about the technology - now widespread amongst the capsuleer class - but also to provide a foundation for future advances in the field.
