Nice! ... IDE64 transfer aprox 70K/seg . Similar transfer rate we have on Atari.
The C64 demo video was built with great quality. The Matrix movie was digitized, but I see there is bad quality on the capture of single frames. Now the run is what machine reach the 60fps! (with sound please)
Don't forget the C64 version doesn't play sound there. The "Impressice Stuff" orginally was a MP3 connected to the line in of the machine. The ATARI version plays sound, which seems using a CPU cycle count, the C64 may have all in all
(loading the sound data also from HD)
AND: The visual stuff again: The A8 resolution is really straight showing a 64x192 screen with always the maximum of data.
On the C64 you see a clever choosing between the hires and charset resolution (resulting by the colour usage restriction of the standard textmode. At the end it looks like a heavily broken video codec, and you have to fight tending between "very good" and "lousy crap".
To Oswalds Post about C64 killing ATARI: I think, people who blame Commodore for their marketing really don't have a clue about marketing itself. Looking at today's PC market, and comparing it, Tramiel sold a "4 years old" PC with a good painting on the case, making people believe it was the best they can buy.
Heck, I remember, when Tramiel "captured" ATARI, they started to say the same about the XE system as they did some years ago for the C64: Best graphics and sound....
But, as we can see, Tramiel hasn't got the victory as he had at commodore...
