We've some real interesting night thoughts over here: http://www.lemon64.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=54435
Talk freely about the scene, the world of remixing, or anything off-topic unsuitable for the "Fun Forum".
I think with some of these computers, such as C64 and Amiga, we see some decent hardware features for the time. C64, SID and VICII (sprite and scroll), the amiga also had "helper" chips. Today one would call it graphics accelerators, sound cards etc. And these, in a decent typical PC, should be balanced. Unfortunately it seems Amiga didn´t do, (or manage) that later, having its old 8bit soundchip forinstance in Amiga 4000. Which would be like running 8bit soundblaster, in the time of 16 bit gravis etc.. It is rumoured that they did plan a 16bit chip though "Mary", but never came to release it.
