imo if your processor has a 16-bit data bus then its 16-bit, no matter how long you make the fuckin accumulator
@jk what if it's an articulated bus or a double-decker?
@mallaidh they dont lubricate the bendy buses enough and they make this horrible screeching sound
@jk what about the segger saturn
@envgen i mean that has so much shit in it that its less of a console and more of an extremely thick maplins catalogue that happened to have been printed onto a circuit board instead of paper
@jk nights into maplins
@envgen nights: into DRAMs
@jk @envgen nights: into D.R.A.M. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SLMf9cqB__o
@jk Was this the problem with the Jaguar's flawed "Do the Math" half-truths?
@jk wait so the Allwinner A13 (1Ghz Cortex-A8) and A33 (4x 1Ghz Cortex-A7) are 16bit? 😵
@jk what if the data bus is 24-bit but the accumulator is 16-bit?
@jk Look I really don't need any Amiga 500 callout posts on my timeline.
@WAHa_06x36 im a big fan of the amiga! it’s the best of the ~~~16 BIT ERA~~~
@jk @WAHa_06x36 the real truth is, if you read "16 bit" anywhere, like if anybody actually says a thing is "16 bit", it's the sega megadrive 100% of the time
@halcy @jk @WAHa_06x36 this would makes the nintendo 64.....the nintendo 32
@chr @halcy @jk @WAHa_06x36 I wish we still counted in bits for consoles
@wxcafe @chr @halcy @WAHa_06x36 itd look like a regression given how the 6th gen were supposedly marketed as 128-bit
@jk @chr @halcy @WAHa_06x36 yes. Good. No problems. The Nintendo This One Is 64 Bits Too Sorry Gamers
@jk Starts working on a computer with a 16 bit data bus and an 8 bit accumulator.
