No, it didn't use a 8010. It could have but I believe that when
the project was started, the 8010 wasn't ready yet.
They used a ROM instead. They do a number of interesting
logical to physical mapping but these could have been done
with a 8010 just as easily ( and more flexibly ).
Most of the mapping is to handle the holes that the video
causes. Some is related to the dual mapped memory.
Even with the full 512K of memory, I don't know of any
application that needed more than 384K.
The MSN Entertainment Guide to Golden Globes is here. Get all the scoop.
