Did you know?

  • When the 664 was being developed, Sugar was already looking (and hinting publicly!) at the 6128
  • The CPC 472 was a model released in Spain with an extra unsoldered 8K of RAM to circumvent the law that stipulated a spanish keyboard for all machines with up to 64KB memory
  • With a possible total amount of 768 x 270 pixel (540 interlaced) the CPC was the 8 bit homecomputer with the highest screen resolution ever.
  • OpenOffice for Windows/Linux is a direct descendant of StarWriter for the CPC.
  • The transfer speed of the CPC Booster + serial interface is faster than a standard DSL connection.
  • SymbOS can handle more than 50 times bigger hard discs than MS Windows 95A.
  • FutureOS can load 178 KB in 9 seconds from floppy disc.

CPCWiki updates

  • 15/07/08: Upgrade to Mediawiki 1.13.0. Apologies for the short downtime. FCKeditor is incompatible, for now.
