Wasn't it said to have about 5000 gates? Can't imagine that it has nearly
three times as many gates as the 6502 (considering the simplicity of the

having an rgb output (which would be much simpler).

I'm trying to remember from the Stella video. I'm pretty sure it was 10,000 but it's been a while since I viewed the tapes.

As for how many gates vs. the 6502, the TIA does both the video and the audio. It's a different sort of task vs. raw number crunching.
