was the world's first 32bit CD-ROM
based game console
, debuting in 1993
In fact it is based on Commodore's Amiga1200 computer: being in-effect an A1200 without a keyboard, floppy drive, mouse, monitor, and having been placed in a suitable case.
Motorola 68020 at 14 MHz,
2MB Chip RAM,
Amiga OS 3.1,
expansion socket (for accelerator,
hard drive, MPEG cartridge),
4 channel stereo sound,
Serial port, 2 Gameports,
Interfaces for keyboard etc
CD32 could be enhanced using these devices :
ProModule, Paravision SX-1 and Paravision SX-32 (which includes 68030 CPU).
These devices make it possible to use a floppy disk, hard disk, IBM PC keyboard and much more with this Amiga. An AmigaCD32 could be turned into a de facto Amiga1200 via the addition of 3rd party packages.
NOTE: When you make CDss which you want to have read on an Amiga CD32, make the CD as ISO 9660, level2, mode1. Don't use Rock Ridge or Joliet extensions.
