There is no bus arbiter, but only static signals that "shut up" the other CPUs, which is also the reason why any DMA device will not work (such as A570 or A590). A pass-through for the 86-pin slot will not work for the majority of devices, so there will be none.

now i get it
otherwise, until now, someone would "hacked" that..
interesting stuff we, the AMIGA users, are using DUAL CORE machines for a long time but sadly, only 1 core is used

it would be extra if the outer cpu can be used like copro ( fpu) ... but, not everything is possible ..
