@mad-matt: the C64 and CPC could both do 160x200 in 16 colours, except that the CPC could have a colour per-pixel but the C64 had a colour per 4x8 pixels. I think. I was never really into the C64 and only know one person who ever had one!

CPC game speed (especially scrollers) suffered despite its faster processor as it had 16K of screen memory to move around, crappy hardware scrolling and no hardware sprites. It beat down the C64 on 3D games though
