Looks like that to me too, but TED only has an 8 Bit data bus so there must be a way to select upper and lower half of the RAM. > It seems to the right of it is the X and Y decoders; and to the right > of that are various registers to do with X and Y (Y on top, X at bottom > -- 9 resp. 10 bits). Still, VIC-II had about the same amount of logic but needed a lot of space for the sprite logic. Ok, TED also has the sound generator, keyboard port and chipset signal generation, but still.
