What is it? groepaz> eh? wtf IS a 65GZ032 ? SCPU on acid ? :=D After successfully making a 6510 on an FPGA, I took a step further and am now working on the 'gz032'; a 32-bit fully pipelined cpu, with cache etc that also runs 6502 code (with the exception of illegal instructions; those are used to access the 16 and 32-bit instructions). It has 4 gigs of address space; accessible without banking mechanism; just like you would expect from a 32-bit cpu. Although it will also run existing 6502 code really fast (approx. 100 times a 1 MHz 6510), it will give you more performance (about the same as a 25 MHz 68EC040) when you use the 32-bits instructions. So that is why a compiler would really come in handy! For the ones that want to have it tomorrow - I am sorry; it is still under development. Sure enough, I have made a design document for this CPU in which the encoding of all instructions is listed. If you want to call it "vaporware", please feel free. I'll make sure that within some months the real thing is on my desk, or on yours if you are nice to me! ;) Gideon Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list
