I think I'm not alone when I say I believe many people will be using the P2 for some type of retro-inspired computer design. Oh, I'm sure some people will use it for "serious" work...but for nerds like me, I want to "P2-power" my retro computer designs.
I'm reading through the Google docs now but I had a few questions to get me started.
1) Would the P2 be able to act as main memory for a 6502 (or even M68000) based computer? I know the P1 could do a 6502 as main memory but was limited to about 1 MHz. More specifically, do you think the P2 could be main memory for an 8-10 MHz M68000 homebrew? I was thinking of using it as 128K of video RAM for a M68000 computer I am designing.
2) Similar to question #1...do you think the P2 could act as glue logic for an 8-10 MHz computer? I'd rather use the P2 than CPLD's or FPGA's if I can.
3) The P1 is great at VGA. I assume the P2 is astronomical. What kind of VGA resolution/depth are you guys getting with minimal cores?
I'm sure I will have more questions later.
