Even if the difference between I/O-Ports (6510 = P0-P5 and 7501 = P0-P4,P6-P7) can be worked around (patching all KERNAL locations and ignoring tape functions), the question is, will the 6510 or the 8500 work with 1.77 MHz the 8501 runs at part or all of the time? I don't remember ever seeing a 6510A and the 6510T from the 1551 which supposedly runs on 2MHz seems to be even more rare than a 8501. BTW: In a PAL 264 system, you can push the CPU to 2.2MHz by setting TED to 'display off' and 'NTSC'. You don't get usable video output, but double speed compared to normal. Never crashed on me, but I always had heatsinks on TED and CPU back then. > > Bil Herd > > -----Original Message----- > From: email@example.com > [mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org] On Behalf Of Ruud@Baltissen.org > Sent: Saturday, August 13, 2011 12:23 PM > To: email@example.com > Subject: Re: 264 Series and their chips > > Hallo Gerrit, > > > Have you ever thought about replacing the 8501 with a 8502 from a C128?
