The idea of 16 bit latches apparently is in reference to speeding up the
interface to the board. My question is: if the VGA is an integral part of
the motherboard shouldn't it in principle run much faster than a bus card
limited to the ATs 8MHz bus (assumming the motherboard is running faster
than 8MHz)? Or is there some other factors involved?
