QL Clock Speed

Postby qbits » Thu Aug 02, 2018 7:43 pm

Hi All,
I have a question that may have been answered before but here’s me just asking...
The original Sinclair QL hardware if I gave that a general speed rating of (1) how would later hardware and emulators compare. Using the QL2k emulator it has a clock multiplier which I run at x50 which gives my later programmes a reasonable processing speed. But how does other hardware and emulators compare.

My hardware list
Gold card, QXL, SuperGold Card, Q40, Q40i, Q60

My emulator list
QLAY, QLAY2, QL2K, OPC1, OPC2, Qemulator, SMAQ/E, uQLx

(Que: do some or all of these have variable clocking multipliers like the QL2K)

Can a table be produced:-
Gold Card – x10 for example
QL2K – variable from x1 to x1000 etc

This maybe a bigger question than it seems... or just curiosity that killed the cat!!!

Qemulator lets you choose between:
- Original QL speed (slightly faster than a real QL)
- Gold card speed
- Full speed (I suppose it depends on your PC speed)
