>The original Archimedes hails back to 1987. At that time, the Atari ST520 was available and the Amiga 500 was released. The Atari had no graphics assist beyond some sprite handling

Atari added BLiTTER coprocessors to its lines in 1987 - the 520 ST was released in 1985 (January 1st at that) - ie the year before Acorn released the BBC Master 128.
