Uses the new AGA graphic chipset, that made available 256 colors mode, 256K colors HAM8 mode and higher resolutions.

AGA means Advanced Graphics Architecture, was a big improvement over the OCS chip set, but the chip design was still lacking a real graphic mode called "chunky" that was needed to make fast games like the "everyone wants to play it" [[game:Doom]].
