Rubbish! I have a 256 colour screen running pretty smooth on my A1200/060/AGA. Infact, Sim City 2000 is supposed to run faster in Mac emu than Amiga version! Again, to achieve good Mac speeds, it comes down to configuring it. I use both Fusion and Shapeshifter, and get similar speeds in both. Obviously a graphics card is better than native chipset, but AGA can be made to run fast, especially if you use external video drivers.
