According to http://www.zimmers.net/anonftp/pub/cbm/schematics/computers/vic20/324001_1.gif the PAL VIC in the VC-20 uses a Crystal at twice PAL clock and the chip has 2 clock inputs, one of them is the clock after being run through a 74LS74. Makes me wonder if they did some dirty tricks with this. The NTSC-VIC uses the normal 14.318MHz crystal (according to the schematic). Also, even though the 6560 is older than the patent, as far as I know they did backport some of the things they learned when designing the ill fated 6562 to the 6560/61.
