Nice 105 MIPS and 51 MFLOPS for what ... A500 V2 with 2.9 CORE X11?

Same core revision, but in A600. Even slightly faster :) Kudos, Gunnar!

Does this next release fix the rounding issue

Peter, here you can read about the FPU.

The Wiki page should answer your question.

Looks good. Except fpsp handled instructions, are only a few fastest than MC68882 version, and over 2-3 times slowest than Pentium version. Im not hardware expert, but for me optimised versions for 68080FPU can be much fastest. I know that problem for handling these instructions in FPGA is limited FPGA space. My idea (i dont know if possible to do) is next. Remove FPSP vector, place all highly optimised microcoded instructions inside Apollo core, place all big tables for microcoded instructions in external ROM. I think that it will be much fastest, because only reads from external ROM tables will be slow.
