According to the WDC page they do /did.  From what I've read about the Atari
Lynx, they use the core die and glue it together in a package with some of
the other functions.  There's even a hack on the net to replace the 16MHz
crystal with a 24MHz, and the handheld still works. So the WDC core must be
capable of over clocking beyond the 20MHz spec. Any body tried over-clocking
the SCPU?
