There was definitely some advanced stuff available from a purely technological perspective, but the main difference was that this was usually custom hardware carrying an astronomical price tag.
For example, the Quantel Paint Box was really advanced and way, way, waaay beyond anything available for consumers in 1984, but the price (adjusted for inflation) was in the $300,000 ballpark.

What the Amiga did was to raise the consumer level tech to a new standard.
