Harris CS80C286 -20

As mentioned in the story of this 8MHz 286 some companies made 286's running at 20 or 25MHz. Harris was one of those manufacturers to get these 286-beasts on the planet.

I bought the 20MHz 286 long time ago and haven't seen another 20 or 25MHz 286 (with motherboard) for quite a long time. Only every now and then some pop up on eBay, but with working motherboard they are quite rare.

Unfortunately there is one caveat with my Hedaka motherboard for the 286: it has 1 wait-state memory access. This hurts performance and will cause the system to perform in the ballpark of a 16MHz 286 in several cases.
