Remark: This article describes the BASIC command FAST in Commodore BASIC 7.0 or higher.

Type: Command
General Programming-Syntax: FAST

The command FAST switches the clock frequency of the Processor from 1 MHz to 2 MHz. This deactivates the 40-character screen mode and graphics and text output is only in 80-character screen mode. The FAST mode with the 2 MHz clock of the processor can be terminated again with the command SLOW.

Note: When using a television set (at the RF connection) or monitors (at the video/audio socket) with the 40-character mode, no picture output is visible in FAST mode!
