Commodore/Amiga 4000/030


Please read an introduction to Amigas in the Amiga 1000 entry.

The last model of home computer ever released by Commodore Business Machines was the Amiga 4000. Significant upgrades to the video system (AGA and HAM8) gave Amiga users new found resolutions and colors, at the cost of compatibility with the older Amiga ECS and OCS systems.

The "030" models came with a 68EC030 CPU without internal MMU and no FPU-chip. The 4000 desktop also introduced Amiga users (along with the Amiga 1200HD) to the ATAPI/IDE system for the control of hard drives instead of the SCSI controller found in Amiga 3000s. The SCSI controller was re-introduced into the design of the 4000T.
