If you take a look at the schematics of the freerunner [1] on page 12 is
the glamo multi media coprocessor (not just gpu) shown. It seems that
the data bus is 16Bit wide with 23Bit address bus. It also seems to be
hardwired to use internal PLL for clock generation so i don't know at
which speed it runs.
