But to be honest, just about any machine has a lot of potential when you start replacing the main chips with modern tech... ;-)

Thats what the Coco3 did to the coco2 ..same cpu ..just helped unleash its potential..

Alot back then was a $$$ factor.. the ti994a had 16k on the video side and only 256 bytes on the cpu side.. it was a $$$ limitation..

Im sure the designers might of liked 64k each side .. 

  But your correct in implying a speak and spell with a 64bit arm processor could do great things too..😁

Yup

This would have been impractical back in the day to say the least due to the RAM available at the time.
Yes, they could have done more with the GIME, but it also would have cost more.

If they had only added a sound chip, and a real time clock.  :P

Another CoCo programmer from bitd had discussed accessing the 256 color mode on the GIME; looks like that pic is doing the same - what is the link to the Discord discussion thread James?
