Here''s one of the really cool groups dedicated for the system on Facebook. There''s lots of old Atari devs., programmers and even magazine reviewers from the era so, if anybody is interested in joining, here''s the link to it:

No claim was ever made by Atari that the system was completely 64 bits across. This was the big contention that had people complaining about the ''bitness'' of the machine. It had the OPL((Object Processor Logic) not the POP) and the Blitter Chip, which were fully 64 bits across and used the fully 64 bit data bus of the system. The GPU core was a 32 bit RISC processor as was the DSP core, neither of which had any reason to be 64 bits wide. The idea was to use the GPU core to command the 64 bit parts. Unfortunately all too many developers used the 16 68k processor and choke the daylights out of the performance, hence the 16 bit looking games for the most part. The power was certainly there but the tools and the support were not. I believe there were at least 70 games plus not to mention numerous homebrews...which are still being made today.

How wasn''t the Lynx a portable console? It took batteries, had its own screen (didn''t require you to connect it to a television) and was light enough for a child to carry. It might not have been pocket-sized, but portable it surely was.

Despite the fact this console was a solid flop (not just because of poor salesmanship but sometimes the brand new units didn''t work at all), it also turns out to be a diamond in the rough. My favorite games were Ray-Man, Iron Soldier 1 and 2, and Alien Vs. Predator.
