Zilog reintroduces enhanced Z80!

I did get far enough along with some 55ns SRAMS in four 16K boards, to see
clearly that running the processor at 12 MHz with floppies isn't nearly as
good as running it at 4 MHz with a decent hard disk. The difference between
my 8 MB ramdisk and my then 40 MB (formatted) HDD, was barely noticable,
while both were considerably faster than the hot-rodded CPU with fast RAM.

Just my observation, of course. Few processors would actually run that fast
for long, but those 8 MHz parts would do it for a little while if you kept
them cold.
