I just got this file from GEnie. I take no responsibilities for any error.
This is strictly for your information and enjoyment. This is not ment for
flames. This is not to be read by the mentally immature. This is a complete
comparison of three fine machines.


Enjoy:

_______________________________________________________________________________


Here is a technical comparison between Atari's new Falcon 030, Commodore's

new Amiga 1200 and Apple's new Performa 400. All of these machines are aimed at

the home computer user in price and power. They each feature their own
Multitasking Graphic User Interface (GUI) operating system, which is not
compatible with MS-DOS. Each of these computers has their own software library.
They are all based on Motorola brand CPU's. You won't find "Intel inside" any of
these machines, unless it's in the form of an emulator board! ;^>

FINAL NOTES: The Atari & Commodore machines are housed in a single case. They do
NOT have detached keyboards. The Atari Falcon is in the same case as it's
predecessor the 1040STE, and the Amiga 1200 is in a restyled case similar to the
Amiga 500. Also, each of these computers is available without a hard drive for
less money. However, models with hard drives were used for comparison purposes.

These configuraions are those as supplied by the manufacturer. Individual
dealers may offer other configuration options. The Apple Performa 400 has a
separate keyboard, it is in the same case as the MAC LCII(In fact, that's
exactly what it is!).
The Atari & Commodore machines can operate at many different screen
resolutions and would require a multisync monitor for optimum flexibility. Also,
the Commodore Amiga 1200's maximum resolutions are interlaced(i). It's maximum
non-interlaced resolution is 640x480. Both the Atari Falcon & Commodore Amiga
1200 will also overscan, giving them more resolution in that mode and making
them suitable for Desk Top Video (DTV). The Apple Performa would require an
analog VGA type monitor. With additional Video Ram, the Performa can display up

to 32,000 colors maximum.
The data path on the Atari Falcon is listed as 32bits wide with 16 bits
used with COMBEL. The COMBEL chip sits between the CPU and the memory chips.
The bus from the CPU to the COMBEL chip is 16 bits, however, since there are no

waitstates on this bus, it operates at rates comparable to 32 bits. The bus from
the COMBEL to the memory is 32 bits. The data path on the Performa is 32 bits
wide, although only 16 are used and the RAM accessed is 16 bits.
The Atari Falcon is the only computer here with a DSP (digital signal
processor) chip.

And pretty good too! Tho, with a couple of things in error, or left
out.

I wasn't aware the AGA machines had a 2MB possible ROM space. AMigaDOS
3.0 currently is a 512k ROM.

The Amiga's ports can either be digital or analog. So I guess its "2

The Amiga's parallel port is also bidirectional.

Coprocessors? Sprites?

All in all, a well done comparison.. thanks for posting it.

The Faclcon OS is also fully preemptive.

I would also mention that the hi colour modes on the Amiga are HAM modes.
Also, does the price quoted for the MAC include a monitor?

I would say that with the additions that have been made the comparisson is
quite accurate.

I would like to restate something, These spec's are right from the
factory. If anything is left out (with the exception of the Blitter chip
and I apologise for that, it should have been caught....though it is
rather understood by everyone now.) then the factory must not have
thought it was a key selling point of their hardware (ie copper).
I have not brought this here to be biased (this is not the media!), just
to see where our beloved computer stands in the real world.

Talk to you later...

Sorry if this has already been discussed, but just what is the copper
for (sounds like something from a bad 20's-era movie).

Is it some sort of graphics coprocessor?

I'd just like to say thanx for the even-tempered discussion here.
I've had to listen to Atari vs Amiga flaming now for almost *EIGHT* years.
It's tiresome and pointless. I almost bought both the ST and the Amiga in '85
but ended up with the Amiga cause I kept spending money on it. 8-)

Basically. Its a display list processor that runs small programs which
define and manage the display. THe Copper can access any of the custom
chip registers (including the ones controlling itself) on the Amiga. A
copper "program" basically consists of a list of MOVE,WAIT or SKIP
instructions. MOVE just moves a value into a custom chip register. WAIT
waits for a certain scanline and horizontal position, and I forget the
exact mechanics of SKIP. But I'm sure someone will enlighten me before I
have a chance to go home and look at the hardware manual. :-)

The copper "program" is restarted every VBlank. A typical "copper list"
for an Amiga display would do something like the following:
(THis is in a very generalized form.. the actual list would be several
MOVE's for each type of operation)

MOVE display type, reg
MOVE dimensions, reg
MOVE colors, reg
MOVE address, reg
WAIT forever

of course, by putting something like this before the "WAIT forever"

WAIT scanline 100
MOVE display type,reg
MOVE colors, reg
MOVE address,reg

you can have two sections of differing resolution and colors on the
same screen. The copper can also control other custom regs such as the
blitter..etc. The copper can also cause interrupts. So basically its
a very easy way of syncronizing to the display. Keep in mind that the
Copper runs concurrently to everything else in the system as well (hence
the ability to cause interrupts).

Completely analogous to the old ANTIC chip in the Atari 8-bit series.

Yup!.. expecially since both the ANTIC and the COPPER where designed by
the same person.

So why don't any other Atari machines (ST, STE, Falcon) have an ANTIC/Copper
chip?

Because the people who designed the 8-bit atari's are not the ones who
designed the 16-bit ones. The person responsible for the Atari
8-bitters ANTIC helped to design the Amiga for Amiga Inc. (which was
eventually sold to C=).

Well considering the ST was almost finished at that time and the original
Amiga was still a mock up you can't truely blame them. But just think what
would have happened. Commodore would be gone or only making their lame PC
clones and Atari would still be making A1000's and discussing the A500 ;)
