a2heaven.com has just revealed one of their projects: a microprocessor replacement for the PAL Apple //e. Switch from your current 8-bit 65(c)02 to the 16-bit 65816 one. You are still running at 1 MHz and access 64 KiB of RAM — but is that the first step before a modern accelerator interface card similar to the one a2heaven.com has recently announced for the Apple //c?
