The claim that the 286 CPU runs better than a faster 386 is really, "optimistic" is a nice way of putting it. 386 systems themselves used a local bus for RAM, rather than the 8MHz ISA bus. Despite what one of the engineers says, who might be a touch biased.

Not that I have any better info, but if anyone has a real VIS and can run a benchmark on it, it would be helpful. As an opinion, it seems silly to sell a unit with such an expensive add-on (CD-ROM drives were VERY expensive!), and yet cut corners on the CPU, especially since multimedia apps would really benefit from CPU power.

Since MAME 0.180 it's possible to emulate this machine, once you got the firmware files, and ISO copies of VIS software, already dumped on some websites. Initial Tandy VIS emulation — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 14:11, 26 February 2018 (UTC)
