@RetroMan: That's all wrong! Agnus *is* the Address Generator, but Agnus is not the abbreviation for "Address Generator"...

From the "Amiga Interactive Guide":

Quote:
The company were in a vulnerable position meaning any company could buy them and use the technology to their advantage. To avoid suspicion they gave each chip a woman's name, such as Agnus and Paula.

Maybe, but why should stand "DENISE" for "Display Encoder" ? What's with the last letters ? Believe me, these are only names without a meaning... (except CIA)
