Correct ?
How many WHDLOAD games can work with plain 68000 which lack VBR support ?
It was supposed to have a 68000 DIL socket next to the 68020, now it has a 68000 CPU and a 68020 CPU on board. I'm sure Jens is sane, so the 68000 will run at the normal 7-ish MHz.

Or what did you mean?

WHDLoad is no fun on an A500, due to quite a few games you wouldn't think whose slaves require >512k chipmem, and the quit thing, and keyboard interrupt (or whatever) gurus. A500+ removes one of those obstacles, a CPU with MMU is really what most WHDLoad slaves are made for, else you have to use WHDLoad for the subset of games that don't guru/complain on 'lesser' Amigas. So even with 68020 WHDLoad won't be perfect, I think. But of course Jens can't make a more niched product because some slaves don't properly support all Amigas...
