I'm pretty sure that the last time I tested it Jiffy was slightly faster than fast serial when both were used with a drive that was not limited by the access/read time of the medium. It wasn't much, about 25x 1541 speed for Jiffy and 23x or so for fast serial, but considering that the real-time requirements of JiffyDOS are much easier to meet (hairy timing just during transfers) than the ones needed by fast serial (hairy timing all the time if you don't want to miss the host-is-fast-serial-capable announcement) in a non-hardware-assisted implementation I know which of the two I'd choose. > There is also a hack for adding it to a C64 (or C128 in C64 mode) but I > never did that. I did, but I disconnected it again because some programs can't handle it. For example the demo "Error 23 91%" crashes in a certain part if this hack is present - or to be more precise if the variant used by the "FSD System" kernal is present because you could connect SRQ/Clock two either of the two CIAs and I don't know which one FSD uses. -i 'parallel is much faster' k Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing listReceived on 2014-04-24 23:03:09
