I remember having breathless on my A1200, back then the setup was an 040 card with 8mb chip and it struggled with the framerate, back then the gfx were amazing and i dreamed of playing at high fps. Then i paid something like £400 for an `060 card and it was lovely, then i discovered that the games wasnt all that good lol.
I kinda guess what i meant was, in the olden days people wrote gfx intensive games, 1 that springs to mind (that flight one) with the fighert jet, cuamiga gave it away, something....FX. Back then it needed a powerful amiga, or even a ppc processor. I guess WINUAE is the spec of amigans dreams back in `92.
