DSP is best for things that are raw calculation bound and which require little memory bandwidth. Even if use-case is calculation bound, DSP itself doesn't have much memory so you likely need to transfer data to it and back, which can also become a bottleneck (or at least you may need to design your CPU <-> DSP communication so that it doesn't become bottleneck).

First, I'll surprise you, but the whole game runs only on the 68030 side (there's absolutely no DSP code for Racer 2, except the music).
LaurentS wrote:The main problem with the DSP is its low memory (96 ko) which is very good for computing, buffering datas, but wouldn't allow to keep in memory the whole cars (+ sides sprites +road textures + music + sounds ...)

No, I know you'd like a perfect size zoom on the cars,
