After improve the sound and image, with the OPL4 Shockwave and V9990 Powergraph cartridges, now is time to improve the math capabilities of our lovely MSX machine.

As many of you may know, the Z80 CPU is not famous by your math calculations power. Thinking about it, in the end of last year, we developed a new hardware for MSX computers:

The MSX FPU Cartridge!
Yes we know! Without software, the hardware isn't usefull. This is the reason because the new cartridge isn't for sale yet. 

We are working together with the Oldbits Studio team to develop the library that will be used with the MSX-FPU cartridge. 

Do you already imagined the "Angry Bird" physics, real time calculated, in your MSX? So... you can start to imagine it now!
