Dragon 32 / 64 review

In the 1980’s The Dragon 32 and Dragon 64 are home computers that were built by Dragon Data, Ltd., in Port Talbot, Wales, and for the US market by Tano of New Orleans, Louisiana. The model numbers reflect the difference between machines having 32 and 64 KB RAM.

  • Memory: 32/64KB RAM
  • Video: MC6847 VDG (Video Display Generator)

 

 

An advanced 8-bit CPU design, having, among, limited 16-bit capabilities .It was sort lived due to its graphical capabilities, and suffered to contemporary machines such as the Sinclair ZX Spectrum and BBC Micro.
