It doesn't mean that they all work. It's not like this is just a copy 
and paste, the size affects things and solving those problems affects 
other things. And on and on.

The are saying between tens or hundreds of hertz, so even 500hz would 
sound quite high.

It's likely to be more useful on a custom board than any existing design.

I don't quite get it, the Amiga chipset were originally wirewrapped. 
They may not have hit the same speed as the eventual custom chips, but 
they clearly exceeded the speed this is running at. So there must be 
something about the original 6502 design (someone more knowledgeable 
than me suggested it was due to dynamic cells and a fully static design 
would suffer less).
