Anyway, overclocked CPU designs from the 70's aren't the future IMO.
This project sounded interesting until the Vampire showed up. I'm pretty certain that the Vampire 500 v2 will reach the market before this one does.
(And remember.. the Vampire is a €150 product...)
FPGA is to CPU's what EPROMS are to ROM's - there's nothing stopping them from being better in every-way than the original and re-programmable too!
