@penguin great infos! Very pleasing to see ST in such variaty of applications.
Regarding RISC: only RISC like CPU in Atari product was Tom and Jerry in Jaguar.
Transputers (ABAQ and ATW) was... Transputers
OK so you mean they never thought of using a MIPS chip for example, or an Intel RISC chip whose name I forgot.(i960 ?)
Strange then, from Atari, to make such annoucement.
IIRC the representative was talking about a RISC chip as the main CPU for the next generation of Atari computers.
I won't say the Archie has impressed them (honestly I doubt it), but the guy was from Atari U.K., and this RISC thing was very commonly praised in the U.K press (from what I can read in these mags from early 90ies).
