I'm not aware of how often. :) The V2 spcu's can 'optimise' and only copy certain regions to the c64. > We already discussed replacing a non 6502 CPU by 6502 + Hardware. I prooved > it can be done.

You can access 8 bits in a 4bank interleave. :) That gives us the ability to access 70ns/4 ;) It's quite possible to access a byte every cycle, minus the time needed to set new dram rows up. > > Groetjes, Ruud Greetings, David - This message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list.
