The tg68k is not cycle exact. So there are differences. But they are usually in the range of +/-5%.
According to http://oldwww.nvg.ntnu.no/amiga/MC680x0 ... mpetc.HTML The "movem.l regs,-(aX)" takes 8+8n clock cycles with n being the number of registers to store. A bus cycles on the real 68000 is four clock cycles, so this is 2+2n bus cycles which makes sense since each register is 32 bits and it takes two bus cycles to write 32 bits via the 16 bit bus. In the genesis the CPU is clocked at 53/7=~7.6 Mhz.
For the TG68 in the fpgagen the clock is additionally divided by 4 resulting in ~1.9MHz. But it runs at full speed. It needs one cycle to fetch the instruction, one to fetch a word containing the register mask and then it writes all registers one 16 bit word per cycle. This results in 2+2n bus cycles.
So the movem.l instruction should be quite exact with respect to the execution time.

Created a SignalTap capture: INTACK cycle is about 22 pixels, but I read it should be 44 cycles. The long MOVEM instruction is 70 pixels, should be more than 100. So these are 30-50% faster than necessary. At the end, read of the counter happens about 150 cycles(pixels) before it should.

So something is wrong here.

slingshot wrote:As I see from the capture, it writes one register in 14 MCLKs, which is 2 CPU clocks - twice as fast as it should be.
MasterOfGizmo wrote:As already written in PM it was actually four times as fast as it should have. Although it never really ran that fast because memory access was slowing it down somewhat, Still we now know that most Genesis games cope with a way faster CPU. I wonder if there are games that would benefit from it like giving a faster refresh rate or the like.

For some reason the latest changes prevent the titan overdrive demo to run further than the initial robot progress bar.
