What a pity !!!! Here in Spain, Amstrad supported the CPC until 1994, when the CPC''s and the rest of the 8 bits computers disappeared.

Sadly Amstrad Australia refused to import these and stopped supporting Amstrad CPC models by 1990.

If you look at the specifications of the aborted Sinclair Loki and the specifications of the Amstrad CPC + series, they do look remarkably similar...
Loki was supposed to have enhanced sound and graphics with hardware sprites, 4096 colours, DMA sound, light pen/light gun port and lots of other fancy stuff.

The videoram chip is not an 18pin 41464 but an Amstrad-branded 20pin 40464, also found in the GX4000.

About the 464 / 6128+ you made a few mistakes :
the computer does not have 64 hardware sprites, but only 16 at a size of 16x16 pixels. The sprites are using 15 other colors than the 16 of the palette, and have x/y zoom.
The soundchip is the same AY as on the CPC, but controlable with a DMA : it is not "better than the Atari one", it is the same, but slower, and connected in stereo.
In the field "colors" : only 16 colors, 31 if you add the sprites.
