"Normal" memory address range?[edit]

So, the Z8001 has 7-bit segment registers that extend RAM out to 8MB (64KB per segment x 128 segments...).

And Pole Position uses Z8002s with a "smaller" memory range (how small?).

But... what does the Z8000 itself manage? As it's 16 bit, did the original authour thus imply 64KB? (Not really very much for a 16-bit class CPU) ... Or does it inherently have SOME ability to use multiple segments... just not 128 of them? (talk) 16:42, 20 May 2014 (UTC)

How's this processor architecture? There's no info on register structure, instruction structure, anything...
