The Amiga Chipset

The Amiga chipset was once the jewel in the computer industry. These mystical components split every generation of Amiga from the rest of the computer industry. Although the Amiga chipset is out of date compared to specialist graphics cards (it is, after all 5 years old) many experts envy its close ties to the rest of the system. Unlike PC graphics cards, the Amiga chipset can does not require configuring to allow software to work with it. It is completely transparent to the user whilst still having a tappable resource that so many programmers love. Three variations of the Amiga chipset were released and a fourth version, the mythical AAA was dropped for not being advanced compared to similar systems. This section examines the capabilities of each chipset, the resolutions available, etc.
