The Atari ST, STE and even Atari TT may have been decent machines, but the Atari Falcon was a new breed. Destined to be a new line of Atari computers. Unfortunately, fate would not be kind to the Falcon, and although revered among fans, most people are blissfully unaware the Atari Falcon even existed.

Makes you wonder if they audited all that cash that went out the window...

Yes, we know the 1980's were full of croney business men, especially in the home computer business. AND YES WE KNOW THEY'RE PRODUCTS WERE SURROUNDED WITH UNSUBSTANTIATED BULLSHIT RUMOURS, IT WAS 30 YEARS AGO. NOBODY FUCKING CARES, GET TO THE FUCKING POINT ALREADY!

  • I bought a Falcon second-hand around 96-97, having had an STE as my 'main' computer up till then - still have both. There's a dichotomy of sorts regarding the Falcon. Powerful, sure, compared to the STE, but in reality it struggles to play mp3 files. Its much heralded DSP never got exploited to any real extent.

    Mojo JomoMojo Jomo2 månader sedan
    • @MagikGimp Definitely a big yes on an OS upgrade. Gem was useless for anything other than single tasks (accs excepted) and Multitos was too slow on any un-accelerated h/w, Falcon included. I had switched to the German package, Magic OS back in the 90's with the STE, bought from System Solutions in London - and who (after checking) amazingly are still in business! One of the best pieces of s/w ever developed for the Atari ST imo. Works on the Falcon too, not as well though. But yeah, a multitasking OS was what I had in mind when musing on the Falcon's power or lack thereof.

      Mojo JomoMojo JomoMånad sedan
    • @Mojo Jomo I wonder if it has something to do with installing a different OS on there? I know that in the later issues of ST Format they went into browsing the WWW fairly extensively so it must have been possible. What they were using to do it I'm not sure; I'll have to check at some point. Unfortunately those actual HTML websites they were browsing are so old they're not archived at all as that started a couple of years later around '98. I certainly had no luck finding what I was seeing in their screenshots at least when I attempted a while back. Again, something interesting to dip in to.

      MagikGimpMagikGimpMånad sedan
    • @MagikGimp Well, 'back in the day', 96-97, it was regarded as a fairly powerful computer, and well, 'modern[ish]'. I was thrilled back then that it could play mp3's, though there wasn't many spare cpu-cycles left over to do much else. Internet browsing was a another matter entirely - way, way more than the humble 16Mhz 68030 could handle - though I admired the efforts of those that had a shot at coding browsers. Admittedly, the only Net my Atari's ever surfed was Fidonet & bulletin boards. I recall those 'simpler times' fondly.

      Mojo JomoMojo JomoMånad sedan
    • A lot of people upgrade theirs to sort out its shortcomings. I certainly can play MP3s with some enhancement although I don't really understand why people are so keen to make old computers do modern[ish] tasks! OK, so it's impressive but I hope there's some task the DSP was more aimed at. Do some demos use it at all I wonder. seworld.info?search_query=atari+falcon+mp3

  • If I'm understanding Atari right in the 90s, they had some if not the best of the best machines in every sector they developed, but they went bankrupt in their marketing, gambles, and in internal strife with which Atari branch would decide the direction

  • Kelly Summer, Commodore UK, described the Falcon as being,far too expensive at £519-£999 and how Atari could claim it was superior to the Amiga 1200 was beyond him. The only advantage the Falcon had was the DSP chip and it's appeal was extremely limited. Commodore had looked at putting a DSP Chip into the 1200, but it just wasn't worth it. The Falcon wasn't moving nor was it a serious rival to the A1200, nor would it ever be one.

  • Atari paid the price for opting to have the Falcon manufactured in the Far East, where it was far cheaper than the USA, the first and second batches of Falcons off the production lines failed Q.

  • Cool little machine. I love(d) using FractInt to explore fractals so when I saw this software running on these types of computers it became more interesting. To me though at the time Atari was never a real computer. It was always a game console. I would have been a fanboy of either Sinclair PCs, some Amiga PCs, or IBM PCs. That is what my friends and I were into.

  • I remember ... and my personal experience was this: "Atari is developing a new machine, it will come with a 040." "Well, that looks interesting. I'm looking forward to buy one." . "Atari released the Falcon, it has a 030 and will / or will not be upgradable to a 040" "Nah, I rather buy an Amiga 040 then" I bought an A4k back then, never had plans to buy a Falcon, but every one of my friends back then bought an A4k instead of a Falcon for *this* *one* *reason* ... it didn't came with a 040 right out of the box.

  • Lived the era, drooled like many over the Falcon, but was too much too late, didn't traction in your shops and the price etc, just pushed it into the fantasy land for many. My geek out got played out with Psions and like many. Yet to play with one, and perhaps one day as on my bucket list. Still recall the upgrading a 512 ST to 1Meg by doubling the RAM chips - solder another chip onto the top, stil these days seems mad and I'm sure saw many think they could add another cpu on top and other madness. One of my favorite times of that era was multi-player multi-machine games. Midi Maze, amazing fun. Then Falcon via RS232 linked to friends Atari ST - great fun - more so if you read the manual and saw the plan had a higher flight ceiling than the missiles and I'd climb, shoot at friend who was below me and he'd shoot, my missiles would fall and hit him and his would fail to even reach me. Schooled him for over a month with that trick until you finally caught on and then it took his son to work it out. Fun times indeed. Back then the graphics left much to your imagination and allowed it to grow, today is all curated imagination graphicly.

  • The Lynx was such an amazing machine...the Jaguar? Shows that powerful specifications without proper resources and libraries for developers equates to simple 16 bit ports. This was truly a shame. The Falcon? A mystery machine that I wanted back in the day, but also a piece of kit with very little software, sadly.

  • The last home computer me and my brother ever bought was the A1200 - an upgrade to our venerable A500. I vaguely remember the Falcon at the time, but Atari was so far off the radar by then that we just never even contemplated getting one. A mate of mine, whose dad was a computer scientist and therefore an "early adopter" I guess, got an ST way before Amiga was around, and a very young me (I must have been about 13 in 1986) was totally blown away by it (especially when it sang "Starglider - from Rainbird" - I'll never forget that!). But two years later, when we got the A500, the ST really did seem like old hat. Amiga seemed like a next gen upgrade, even to the 1040ST, which was still just an ST to a 16 year-old. I don't think Atari ever recovered from that as a home computer brand no matter what they produced.

  • Falcon came too late, when people changed to Mac. The Atari company did suicide by the Jaguar 64 bit console, mostly unknown - also by Nintendo, who did the same mistake, to sell a 64 bit console and there are no 64 bit games. But Nintendo was strong enough to survive, Atari died, the name survived.

  • Between 1985 and 1992 I was a big Atari fan, I had several ST machines from the first one released in 1985. I even went to that German event in 1992 that was shown in the video! (which was a several hundred km drive) But I got really fed up with the ever recurring "announcements" of new machines that never appeared or were delayed. I was looking at TT because it promised Unix but it was delayed and delayed and delayed.... End of 1992 I heard of the all-new Linux system and I assembled a 486-based PC system, something I was never interested in before because of MSDOS. And I never went back to proprietary systems. Atari should have done more to support e.g. Linux instead of TOS and make themselves less dependent on software.

  • Here's what blows my mind....the Atari Falcon cost far more than a Jaguar. Yet the Jaguar just eats the Falcon in power. Now, I have heard many stories of the Atari ST being huge in England and Europe. I grew up in the 1990's in the US and have never seen one in real life. Most of us went from the Commodore 64/128 to consoles or the 386 to 486. Now, knowing what I know about Atari today it would seem that they should have dropped the Falcon and Panther altogether. They should have made the Jaguar into their next microcomputer after the ST. Utilizing the multi-microprocessor setup they could have truly revolutionized multitasking. This would have made the 386 look like a cheap toy and gave the 486 a real run for its money. However, I do think the 486DX2 can smoke a Jaguar.

  • Maybe it's just nostalgia but I really appreciate these the designs and engineering of these old computers and consoles for that matter. Obviously they are pathetically weak compared to modern machines but I really like how Amiga/Commodre and Atari's computers didn't look like IBM Clones,(such as my Tandy 1000) that was so popular at the time. they all had their own style to them. Something else indicative of this period, is this was the era before everyone used Microsoft OS so even company had their OS/programming language. It's fun to look at these videos and be reminded of that but as a computer I'm happier with the way things are today. finally, before I forget another interesting tidbit is for people old enough to have been alive during the 80's and early 90's, is that computers didn't have planned obsolesce like they do today. Now a days there is always anew processor upgrade coming out every year. Where as back then it was normal to use the same processor for several years. A video game example that comes to mind is the Motorola 68000. It was in the Sega Genesis and other systems going into the 1990's, even though by 1991 by my estimates it was already dated.

  • Most of the friends I had was Commodore owners... Some started with the Vic-20, and some with the C64 and most of us ended up with an Amiga. But we had one friend that (as I remember it had a Atari 520ST and a small bit later a the STe model). I never liked it much, (T)OS was not that great (but then again I never actually explored it that much), and if you just start the Amiga with an (pretty much empty disk) you get similar "empty no features" OS (mostly in ROM) I guess... and maybe that was the only thing I saw from the Atari 520 STe. Games on the Atari 520 STe was though pretty much the same, but usually a bit better on the Amiga 500. There was one game that had my jaws open though and that was Xenon 2, a bit later I got that for the Amiga 500 and thought it would be a small bit better, but it was not... it was pretty much the exact same game... But as far as I can remember that was pretty much the only game that was really great and looked/sounded almost the exact same... Probably developed for the Atari STe and ported to the Amiga... Anyway the AmigaOS/Workbench was the Amiga for me it's multitasking and on a TV/CRT monitor it's capabilities to show every available resolution on 1 screen simultaneously was just so awesome... even though it had only 15 multitask priorities (it was almost never needed to change) as the window/screen you actually worked with always got highest priority so with a little bit of extra memory you easily could to a raytraced image, soundtracker, Deluxe paint anim, ArtStudio render, Scenery/Vista animator while you actually programming on in a IDE and it never felt slow... as the focus task got the priority... and when programming you usually just type, and think a lot... so every CPU cycle got used... It was just awesome... Sorry about the Amiga sidetrack :-) but it was WAR :-) at the time hehe

  • I have heard about it even though I have never seen one in real life. These machines weren't prevalent in the US. I was rocking the Sega Genesis in 1989 and loved it. How does this stack up against a Genesis? You know it's crazy to think how many companies were using the Motorola 68K microprocessors. You had the Sega Genesis/Sega CD, Neo Geo AES/MVS/CDZ, Atari ST, Amiga, Sharp 68000, Atari Jaguar, and Sega Saturn...I think I got the all. Hell the Snes was very close to getting its own Motorola 68K at 10mhz and likely would have been a huge problem with the Genesis. Nintendo in the end cheaped out and put that slow Ricoh 5A22 at 3.58mhz.

  • They just couldn't see that the pc architecture was the thing that would win the hardware battle. Both commodore and atari had a shot at developing pc operating systems way before windows saw the daylight. Imagine Amiga os made for pc, and TOS made for pc. The world would have been a better place with that lineup instead of the poor crap today. Even with all that time to mature, I am confident both of those os's would have been better today than both windows, Linux and macos.

By the time of the mid 90s they owned Atari games & as seen here had a 25-27% stake in Atari corporation. Later on Warner bros acquired midway who had acquired Atari games after Time Warner/Warner bros sold them off.

  • It's funny that Atari had decent hardware at times, but totally biffed things when it came to marketing and getting software support. By the time the 16-bit era came around people would know of the Amiga, but only some odd enthusiasts and synthesizer musicians knew of the Atari ST. (At least this was the case in the U.S., and Atari being a U.S. based company. I think Europe carried them better at the time the computer in this video came out.)

  • Only $3899.99 on ebay, get yours today! I loved Atari. Sad they were so clueless about managing their products.

  • Nice when a CD version of a game is released with very few ROM drives available.

  • Poor Atari launched better models too late. Then IBM destroyed everything despite very crappy cpu

  • Fantastic quality about another machine with great potential. It is also surprising how both Atari and Commodore went went broke at the same time...sadly, a real era ended with them.

  • I say they pick up where they left off with the Atari Falcon that looks like a ps2... let it play new modern Atari made stuff along with all old 2600-5200-7800 games n so on.

  • Excellent video. I enjoyed this. One small mathematical error though. At 12:30 you discuss the diminishing ST software sales: "...ST game sales now accounting for 13 percent of their previous orders, 20 percent down on the previous year." The previous year's ST software sales are given as 33 percent. This is a decrease of not 20 percent, but 60 percent. 100%(1-.13/.33) = 60.606%
