Gee, how does it perform? I built a clone of a Logical
Microcomputer Co. 32016 Multibus system and got it working.
But, it was glacially slow! I did have some memory that was
likely a little slower than the stock memory, but it wasn't
insanely slow. But, firing up certain things like editors
was just maddening. And, I'm not talking about Emacs, just
vi. I eventually got a MicroVAX-II to replace it, and, yes,
that DID have a cache to speed up the memory, but it was
quite a difference.
