The C64 and ZX Spectrum weren't either but obviously there was a market for it.

On par?

Sega System 16A vs Amiga 1000:

MC68000 @ 10 MHz vs 7.1 MHz.
320 x 224 vs 320 x 200.
128 Sprites on screen at one time, 2 tile layers, 1 text layer, 1 sprite layer with hardware sprite zooming, translucent shadows vs 8 Sprites, 32 colors for background.
