  Atari Falcon 030 - Wikipedia
Der Atari Falcon 030 war ein ab 1992 verkaufter Heimcomputer von Atari.
Schon früh lieferten Drittanbieter Erweiterungen für den Falcon, die den Prozessortakt und den DSP-Takt erhöhten (z.B. den Skunk32), eine schnellere CPU (z. B.) einsetzten, die Bildschirmauflösung erhöhten oder zum Digitalisieren von Videobildern verwendet werden konnten.
Das neue Multitasking-Betriebssystem MultiTOS wurde von Atari nicht rechtzeitig fertiggestellt und daher separat auf Diskette mitgeliefert.

Atari develops, publishes and distributes games for all major video game consoles, as well as for the personal computer, and is currently one of the largest third-party publishers of video games in the United States.
The original Atari was a pioneer in arcade games, home video game consoles, and personal computers, and its dominance in those areas made it the major force in the computer entertainment industry in the early to mid 1980s.
The Atari 5200 game console, released as a next-generation follow up to the 2600, was based on the Atari 800 computer (but was incompatible with Atari 800 game cartridges), and its sales never met the company's expectations.

Der Atari Falcon 030 ist ein 1992 von Atari herausgebrachter Heimcomputer.
Der als Nachfolger des Atari TT und 1040 STE gedachte Computer fand jedoch wegen der sich zu diesem Zeitpunkt immer mehr durchsetzenden Personalcomputer und der eher schwachen CPU-Leistung keine weite Verbreitung mehr.
Atari passte dann das AES (siehe: GEM), also die Funktionalität der grafischen Oberfläche, an die Multitasking-Fähigkeit des neuen Kernels an.

 ATARI FALCON 030
ATARI VS APPLE VS PC The two things I hear often from customers are "Surely Macs are much more suitable for music/audio?", and "Isn't the PC now the most cost-effective option?" Like all generalisations, there is a germ of truth in both of these assumptions.
Atari's constant attention to the needs of the musician (present, or even future, as with the release of the Falcon) at the design stage is completely unique in the computer industry, and I feel should be rewarded by press recognition, developer support and, ultimately, consumer purchasing.
Atari are still the only company that the MI press can talk to directly, even if their attention has now been somewhat distracted by the massive potential of the video games market with the Jaguar.

Atari was also working on a "high-end" 68000 based machine at the time, so it is not clear what their intentions for the Amiga design were.
Atari went on to release the Mega STE, an STE in a grey TT case that ran at a switchable 16 MHz, with extended video modes similar to some of those available on the TT or Falcon, high density (1.44 MB) floppy disc drive, and an optional built-in 3.5-inch hard disc.
Atari Falcon 030 — another 68030 based (albeit only 16 MHz) machine like the TT, but in the 1040-style case (yet again) with further upgrades to the graphics and sound, a Motorola 56000 DSP for CD-quality sound recording and processing, multitasking OS (on disk) and a LocalTalk port for networking.

 About the Atari Falcon computer
I've used a Falcon system in my studio for several years with great results and I'd recommend it to anyone who's more comfortable with the Atari system than with PC or Mac, since it really works very well and is very reliable.
To be honest, the converters that are built into the Falcon from the start aren't as good as you'd wish for - and besides, the S/Pdif interface gives you the possibility to use a standard DAT with digital in/out as a cheap tape streamer for your audio files.
My Falcon was housed in a full tower, to make sure that most of the things I needed could fit inside the case.

The release of the Atari Falcon in early 1993 dispelled one myth for all time: you don't need tens of thousands of pounds worth of kit to get into hard disk recording at a reasonable level.
C-Lab's Falcon is intended to be a music workstation, which has led to one important internal change: the addition of a SCSI card for an internal 2.5-inch SCSI hard disk.
The Falcon Mk II is sold complete with the full memory complement of 14.2Mb plus a 514Mb internal SCSI hard disk and the relevant ICD software pre-installed.

 Atari Explorer Online: 3-Oct-92 #9216
From Atari's presentation to the Boston Computer Society last night, it was pretty clear that having the DSP act as a modem will be not only possible but a selling point for the Falcon.
When asked about the reason for Atari's choice of 16-bit true color as opposed to 24-bit color, the response was that the eye can see about one million colors, and 24-bit allows 16 million colors: the 16-bit color was a good compromise for the real world and brought Falcon expense down without cost to performance.
