Very clever. Whilst it would be nice on the CPC to have something similar, the main use would be for patched games - Sentinel, Freescape games, and so on, that could be patched "easily" enough to make use of such a speed up. Otherwise it would be so rare that nobody would write for it.


But I would like it in the CPC FPGA cores for mister, etc - assuming one day I get such a thing.

changes like this really mean you haven't got a CPC anymore


That depends on which bit is the CPC to you.  If you change your 3" drive to a Gotek, is it a CPC?  If you change your keyboard to a PS2 keyboard, is it a CPC?  If you change everything to a JustCPC, is it a CPC?  I guess my PC is not a PC anymore and my Amiga is not an Amiga anymore and my CPC is not a CPC anymore... because they are enhanced.
