In particular, the TI-99/4A had a 16-bit TMS9900 microprocessor running at 3.3 MHz, however, several design decisions in their negative impact on the performance of the machine. Robotics describes an additional similar source. First, only have 256 bytes of RAM addressable by the CPU, and the remaining belonged to 16Kb VDP (Visual Display Processor). Secondly, all the peripherals and the CPU connected to memory through a multiplexer 16-a-8, which required two clock cycles for every access, by introducing wait states (wait state) additional.
