quite lengthy[edit]

This article describes quite lengthy the history of former Atari (and Clone) computers and only a short paragraph about the ACP itself - missing topics are what the ACP exactly is, what the advantages and disadvantages are, why the name »Coldfire« and so on.

  • The name Coldfire is because of the processor. This is implied in the article. "the ACP will use a completely new design, moving away from 68K CPUs to the newer ColdFire class, more powerful than even the fastest 68K chips while still having a largely similar (but not completely compatible) instruction set." This is a page on the processor: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coldfire Centerone (talk) 22:37, 28 January 2010 (UTC)
