A few years back someone posted a tale from CBM back then -- a couple of engineers, possibly inebriated, decided they should see how high they could clock a 6502. They got it somewhere in the vicinity of 25 MHz before the magic smoke literally escaped. I tried searching deja for the article, but I couldn't find it... Imagine running a CPU at 25 MHz in the late 70s or early 80s though. Must have been quite a thrill :) -- ___ . . . . . + . . o _|___|_ + . + . + . .
