What is the clock speed of the AVR8 soft processor when used in the Arduino envirnoment ?

Is it 16 MHZ like normal or does the soft processor run much faster resulting in an Arduino on steriods?

Hello Craig,

The clock speed is 16Mhz, I wanted the AVR8 to be as close to the Arduino as possible. If you want something that is more like an Arduino on steroids then the ZPUino Soft Processor is the way to go. It is a 32 bit Soft Processor running at 96Mhz that has VGA adapters and more...

I was only ever able to get the AVR8 running at ~25Mhz, it won't meet timing above that. I didn't spend much time trying to get it faster but I don't think it was ever intended to be fast...
