CX5-M - MSX

  • Released 1984

  • CPU Z80A at 3.58MHz

  • RAM 32k/64k

  • ROM 32k

  • Text 32x24 (16 colour)

  • Graphics 256x192 (16 colour)

  • 3 channel mono sound (AY8910)

  • Tape and 3.5" floppy

  • MIDI interface

    The MSX standard was the first attempt to get a range of computers with similar specifications. Each manufacturer was to add something extra - eg Philips added Laser Disc, Yamaha added MIDI ports and DX7 interface. However, before the standard was completed, there were many superior machines available and Commodore's C64 software base was extensive, so they never became popular.
