Re: The "perfect" TT?

You have to remember that when the TT was on the market 32MHz was considered a high clock speed. High end PCs at the time (costing a lot more than the TT) had only just got the 80486 processor running at 33MHz. Sun UNIX workstations, costing close to 10 times the price of the TT were either 32MHz 6...

What makes me wondering: is there some modded, improved TT TOS made ever ?
Depending on what you define as improved: yes. TOS 3.06 modded for PAK68, and another TOS 3.05 modded for some other accelerator card. What has been changed is unknown to me.

Re: Falcon hardware on a ST.

But I was thinking more of not doing DMA at all and offloading the data onto the DSP SRAM like can be done on Falcon. Of course I never use DSP myself so no idea software side of how it all works or exactly what the SRAM is for. Okay, if I get you right, you basically don’t want a coprocessor (in t...

I have GEM running on my Atari PC3. I’m only aware of GEM Write and GEM Paint as far as dedicated GEM Software though.

Re: Falcon hardware on a ST.

There is of course DSP in Falcon, can play tracker tunes using it easily, maybe MP3 even... So thought of placing DSP into ST design.. but what else would be needed.. I mean if a simple Falcon program like "bob tracker" (think it used DSP can't remember) Thought being , aside from TOS404 which prob...

Re: Really crazy idea ...

So maybe, just maybe, it would be possible to somehow connect a PCIe Graphics Card to the Atari, maybe over the DMA-Port? The serial ports of the ST only do 19200bps, that would be too slow for use, but the DMA-Port can do well over 1 MB/s, that might be enough to run a framebuffer at relatively lo...

Re: MSTE vs STE TOS206

Out of curiosity I benchmarked Magic and NVDI on the MSTE https://s22.postimg.cc/91s9x1xzl/IMAG0597.jpg I'd read on atari-forum that it was faster than pure TOS. After a result like this I uninstalled it immediately. Why, what’s wrong? MagiC+NVDI are of course way faster than TOS 2.06, especially w...

There is a auto program for the STe that allows interlace in 320x200 or 640x200. I used to use is for 640x400i in 16 colours on my MegaSTe. That would have to be possible on a TT at least?
Do you mind sharing the name and/or download link of the software?
