This whopping 16-bit computer processor is being built by hand, transistor by transistor

Re: Beat the clock

It's only 14m long. Assuming 0.7c because of the dielectric of the wires that would be 66.6ns propagation delay end-end. So you could run is under 15MHz, say 1MHz should be do-able.

With the current speed it still beats the 1957 all-valve DASK.
