What little I've read about UNIBUS told me that UNIBUS has no set clock
rate, and that the speed of communication between two devices would be the
the highest rate that both devices could handle. If you've got nothing
but Sridhar-made fast devices on the bus, what stops you from having a
UNIBUS operating at say, 33MHz to 100MHz on average?

Remember that I currently have approximately zero electrical engineering
(or whatever you choose to call it) knowledge.
