    what do you think?

    the whole objective is to make a calculator that can play Doom I and Doom II.

    I raelly like the concept of the ikky fikky things...fascinating to say the least

    but if you are serious about this then I have just made circuit schematics for a fully functioning 133mghz processor. It is a low level design though, but on the testbench it seems to be working. It was a semester long project in my computer architecture class. All files are .v's and were made using tkgate if you are interested.

    thats pretty cool. did you actually build a prototype of it, or have you just tested it on paper? (paper in a very very general sense of the word)

    no, no prototypes, just schematics for all the logic circuits that it includes made in a software callled TKGate. The software simulates your circuits to see how they would work when actually build...and like I said, the waveforms it generated seem to be OK...I did not get a grade for it yet however.....

    I don't think you would need 8 MB of VRAM. I ran Doom I & Doom II extremely fast on my old 486-33 DX with a 1 MB Trident SVGA graphics card.
