about zilog ez80[edit]

what is the main use of zilog ez80? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 15:44, 7 January 2009 (UTC)

A general purpose microcontroller or CPU has no main use, it's up to you! —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 23:06, 1 March 2009 (UTC)
But if I recall correctly Zilog suggested that you use it to put web servers in everything like industrial machines, dishwashers, washing machines, toasters et.c. // Liftarn (talk)
Why hasn't anybody made a lightning fast ZX Spectrum clone? :D (talk) 10:12, 10 February 2014 (UTC)

n Times faste than Z80?[edit]

The article states:

Available at up to 50 MHz (2004), the performance is comparable to a Z80 clocked at 200 MHz if fast memory is used […] or even higher in some applications (a 16-bit addition is 11 times as fast as in the original). <Omission and markup added by discussant.>

Keeping in mind that a Z80 is usually clocked with 2,5, 4 or maybe 8 MHz, the last bold striked clause seems to be irritating (at least 200 Mhz means we are talking about being 25 upto 80 times faster). I guess that there is meant that the eZ80 is 11 times faster at same clock speed as a Z80 regarding 16 bit addition. Please clarify. -- Pemu (talk) 11:42, 3 May 2015 (UTC)
