If people like old platforms, why they need a new chipset? Or, to put it differently, why not bang the hardware of a raspi, alternatively? Or call a software function, alternatively?

SAGA is not an RTG system. It is a chip interface that provides chunky and hicolor graphics. An RTG system is a software layer. So please, don't confuse the two.




And that's where the...

The trouble is that you seem to assume that this is some kind of "one-way road". Gunnar defines what it has to be, other people just implement and pay. However, this is not how the world works....

I don't know how UAE handles this, but the Amiga memory is part of the PC memory, obviously. I guess the PC is just fast enough for line drawing and blitting - such operations can be forwarded from a...

No, because that was only part of the internal driver API, but not of the API between user and P96. Non-linear frame buffers went away already in ancient times (before the P96 2.0 release, before...

You seem confused. So, the native chipset has of course a linear frame buffer, providing direct access to the memory of the frame buffer. Quite unlike some ancient VGA chipsets such as the one of the...

P96 is a software interface for RTG hardware, how the hardware operates does not matter provided there is a driver for it. P96 supports chunky and planar layouts. It's specifications are stable since...
