Took me over two years from buying a pair of these 80s era video display processor chips to being able to verify that actually I might not be too stupid to use them, because they're 100% fake (verified electrically against values from known working chips published online)

worst of all, a video came out a year later about this practice of relabeling chips as something more expensive, and it's *specifically* about these TMS VDPs youtube.com/watch?v=12u_hBkHB8

hopefully the rest of the cheaper components weren't worth faking? now I doubt every integrated circuit in the house
