NEC ADDS Z80 COMPATIBILITY TO ITS V30 FOR 8800 MICRO

By CBR Staff Writer

Clearly despairing of ever seeing the long-promised Z800 Z80-compatible 16-bit microprocessors from Zilog, NEC Corp has produced a version of its own V30 8086-compatible 16-bit microprocessor capable of running Z80 code to produce a top-end model of its PC-8800 family of 8-bit micros. According to the Newsbytes newswire, the PC-88ZA is three to five times faster than the previous line-topper, includes Japanese language processing and communications, and costs the equivalent of $2,000 with two 1Mb floppy drives and 512Kb of main memory.
