Mark, I thought I said the same as you. Maybe my English is not the best, but I said exactly the same that this FPGA64 CPU uses a fully synchronous design with clock enable (when I said it "slows" down there I meant the clock enable signal) and that is the best approach. I said it is a drawback however because I want to interface this 6510 to external dram chips which are slow. The CPU is however still fast because it will do its job with the 1st clock cycle (fast clock) and then it suspends for the rest of the clock cycles until the 1MHz time elapses. Old dram chips however provide/expect the data out of the CPU's running cycle. If you put it inside the GODIL then you need some tricks to handle properly the timings of a C64. Indeed my plan is to create a 8501 in GODIL to use in plus/4.
