There once was a discussion on how this works in comp.sys.cbm. Someone
posted a disassembly from the demo Mathematica by Reflex which autodetects
the SID type. IIRC, this works by monitoring a waveform, but I don't know
about the details.

There might be another possibility to distinguish the two SID types, but at
least on one of my 8580 SIDs it doesn't work too well.
