Hmmm....read somewhat more through the documentation.

10.2.3.6 Supervisor/User Stack Pointers
To isolate supervisor and user modes, CF4e implements two A7 register stack pointers, one
for supervisor mode and one for user mode. Two former M680x0 privileged instructions to
load and store the user stack pointer are restored in the instruction set architecture.

and

The FPU programming model is like that in the
MC68060 microprocessor. {but is 64-bit instead of 80-bit. I don't know what that means when you want to run MC68K code}

Elbox don't have the greatest track history of delivering the goods do they ?

Wonder why they still advertise the SharkPPC on their site ?  It's been what 3 years now ?

@DaNi

Well, with the BlizzardPPC you loose a lot of time with context switching. So depending on how much CPU time is lost with adding the missing bits to the Coldfire I won't be suprised if it runs the 68K version of Quake 2 faster.

Well.... we have March now. Just wondering if anybody has already seen anything of the Dragon yet (and I mean the body of it, or at least its tail, not the hot warm vapour coming from its mouth :-D ?
