Does anyone know where I can find accurate / reliable details on this? I've found a couple sites but the info is different. Looking for actual frequency range, output level, how many channels you could use at one time, etc...

Are you actually going to use this information constructively or is this bait for you to throw against Sega fans?

Pretty advanced chip at the time it was brought to market.


Then there was the Zilog Z80 chip, used for backwards compatibility with Master system games since that was the main CPU on that, but also as the audio controller chip for the sound equipment in the Genesis:

I wouldn't have said anything considering how TC bashes anyone who has any criticism of Nintendo.

Inb4 Maximo says I hate Nintendo if he doesn't have me blocked.

I am disappointed in the Switch so far, almost like the Wii U. Believe me, I got lots of criticism for Nintendo, but that doesn't mean we cant all be palls. SNES, NES, and even N64 was where it was at.

Jesus, I block this stalking troll and he's still trying to follow / talk trash to me! Dude is insane. @ItchyIsVegeta Avoid OldNew72 like the plague. Dude is literally insane. He will do whatever he can to hijack a thread when ever possible and make it about him. Like he has right now.

I ask for Genesis sound chip actually details and he's going off again. He's desperately tried to report me for everything and failed so many times it's comical.

Someone asked what appeared to be an honest question on a gaming forum that was on topic with the board it was posted on, and I gave an answer.

I honestly really don't care what either of you two do behind the scenes. Not my topic and don't care what gets posted now that I have already answered. You two can debate climate change for all I freaking care.

You rarely, if not, never post in Sega system forums. Are you serious about this sound chip stuff or are you looking for stuff to bash Sega fans as noidentity said? Be honest. And I'm assuming you haven't blocked me since you don't have me on ignore.
