A Milestone

I’ve made two posts about the design of my emulation so far and we haven’t got very far into the nitty gritty. The actual work, though, is much further ahead. In fact, I’ve got to the first major milestone as exemplified from this log of the most recent run of the zexdoc tests.

<adc,sbc> hl,<bc,de,hl,sp>....
48967868957 t-states in 177.437594236 secs for 275.972344912829 MHz

This tests all of the normal documented instructions of the Z80 except the control flow ones and a few others. It also tests a few of the undocumented ones. There’s still a lot of work to do, but this is a good mile stone.

One thing that does surprise me slightly is the notional speed of the CPU. This is much faster than my 6502 implementation but I think that is a partly function of the fact that real Z80’s generally took more cycles to do the same thing as a 6502. The notional speed is calculated by adding up the number of t-states executed and dividing them by the time taken to execute. This accords with reality where a 1MHz Commodore 64 was broadly similar in performance to a 3.8MHz Sinclair Spectrum.
