Somewhere on stackexchage, I, or someone else asked what was the proper term for Turing completeness minus the infinite memory (e.g. a Turing machine that one can actually build, no bigger than your typical data center). Answer was inconclusive.
Also, someone else asked somewhere else on stackexchange about the number of gates for a Turing machine, but that got sidetracked into the useless infinite definition (that many quanta do not exist in the known universe).
So using the non-infinite Turing machine definition (*), whatever that is, is there a known lower bound on the number of 2-input binary gates needed to produce a Turing complete computer? Or a reasonable guess or a minimum among known current published existing example implementations?
(* If necessary assume the "tape" is external to the logic gate count, the gates just drive the tape read/write/move mechanism).
