    Default WTB: V20 Cpu (USA)

    Does anyone have a V20 for sale in the US for a reasonable amount?
    I'm looking to upgrade my Tandy 1000sx.
    Ebay is sparse currently.



    Thanks.

    These are fake, btw. Very easy to tell by the picture.

    I'm left wondering how much of a market there is these days for 'fake' V20's?

    Looks like the original one that I'm still using in a system. You probably won't be disappointed. For the time, CerDIP packaging was superior to plastic.

    Which are fake, the D70108HCZ-16s?

    I've upgraded two Tandy machines with V-20s purchased from the perpetual eBay listing for those @ about $4 each and they worked fine. It's certainly possible they're relabeled to pretend they're rated faster than the truth but I haven't had any trouble at 7.16mhz. Judging from the solder tinning on the pins they are definitely *used*.

    I also bought a -16 part and it was not a fake.
