Interesting theory, I had never considered higher clock frequency would make that big difference in power use. Of course I haven't measured the real use, only read what the label says (maximum effect). For that matter, does the Commodore 128 draw significantly much more power than a C64C, or had technology improved by then so it was possible to run a 6502 system faster without making a dent on the electricity bill? -- Anders Carlsson Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list
