It had had been developed a different ST wirh more graphics and music and more performant on games but with ugly Atari TOS.
But it had achieved full support and marketing by mother firm Atari so custoomers had had been more satisfied with it than it happened Commodore Amiga and Atari ST...
It had had featured external SCSI interface for hard disks and practical MIDI port as it happened with real ST so it had been again better practical music machine but unfortunately as long as ATARI was never interested in videomaking or connecting to TVs with a better signal ratio and with practical common TV ports, it had had been doomed showing better resolution and gorgeous color graphics only on dedicated expensive video monitors so it had had never hit market of video productions.
Newer versions had had sported more powerful processors, as this always was ATARI policy (opposite to Commodore) so customers had been completely satisfied with 68020, 68030, 68040 and PPC processors, so again it had been used as powerful machine for 3D developing as lomg as it was Amiga in its best times.
If ATARI had recognized the trend of whats had been happening with personal 3D making, sooner or later it had been equipping it with powerful internal 3D chip that had helped.3D produtions, game making, and game playing too, preceding and predating Sony Playstation, so this fabulous never born Amtari had had been still today on the market.
Steve Jobs had had reviewed it at CES Computer Show and had had judged this Amtari a computer with "Too much 3D Hardware"...
