Vvroom vvroom!

Posted by Phil Mellor on 16:55, 10/12/2003 | , , ,
 
Advantage Six have added Virtual VRAM technology to their A6 desktop computer, which provides the RISC OS emulator software with access to high colour, high resolution screen modes. All A6 machines shipped by Stuart Tyrrell Developments from 10th December 2003 will be VVRAM enabled. Upgrades will be made available to existing customers in due course.

No word yet on whether this is a feature specific to the A6 or a Virtual RPC development from which other emulator products can benefit - but we'll find out.

Pop over to the A6 web site to see a natty new picture of the all black A6 setup.

This is similar to what could be acheived on red-squirrel with RISC OS 3.6 and 3.7 by upping the VIDC bandwidth limit. I'm glad that those who paid for a product get the benifit too.
