One can do pretty crazy things with a stock Falcon. Cf Douglas Little's ongoing work on the Quake2 engine: https://m.youtube.com/playlist?list=...Ww_M5nMm10m0UM (watch the playlist in reverse to get a chronological evolution).

The true color mode and DSP can really make a difference if one is willing to spend the time needed to carefully parallelize work between the CPU and DSP.

I guess we were lucky that Atari messed up the Falcon's CPU bus.
