Hi Gary

If you look at my Timeline :-

http://www.pinpoint1.f2s.com/html/timeline.html

you will see that the Excellence was released in 1985. That was the year that Fidelity started using the 60xx model numbers. My Excellence is an EP12. I assume that the 6080 models are the same in all important respects. Perhaps Fidelity just continued the production run with different model number plaques and updated manuals?

On the Selective Search Ratings Model 6080 is 1755 Elo and the Par Excellence is 1833 Elo.

I just wonder when the EP 12 model came along. Before or after the 6080 model. Probably before, eh?

Hi All,

Another question I got from a visitor. If anyone can help please let me know:

I was wondering about something else regarding excellence.  Do you happen to know what the difference was/is between their Excellence model EP12 and Excellence Mpdel 6080?
In the instructions for EP12 it states that the processor is a #65C02 with 128K of Rom and 16K of RAM........but Par excellence is listed as having Processor #6502 with 32K of ROM and 8K Ram.  Maybe the Excellence model # EP12 is newer than Par Excellence and even better? I can't find manufacture dates for any of them



Just looked in the manual found on Alain's site: the EP12 has 128K bits, not bytes!

So it is 128/8=16 KBytes ROM...

The ParEx is surely stronger than the EP12.


best regards,
Robert
