Description

This article is from the Apple II Csa2 FAQ, by Jeff Hurlburt with numerous contributions by others.

03.014 What Oscillator freq corresponds to what TWGS/ZipGS operating speed?

         For TWGS and ZipGS, the crystal oscillators runs at 4 times the speed of
the 65816. Below is a chart showing osc and corresponding TWGS or ZipGS speed.

Osc Frequency MHz      TWGS/ZipGS Speed MHz
     28                      7
     32                      8
     33.3333                 8.3333
     36                      9
     40                     10
     42                     10.5
     46                     11.5
     48                     12
     50                     12.5
     55                     13.75
     60                     15

     My understanding is that, if you over-clock a CPU. It just won't function.
You can't damage it. As the disclaimer said, do it at your own risk. I have
tried to run my TWGS at 20 MHz, system won't boot at all. No damage.
