(Actual Item In The Photo - Used - No Box - No Manual) MSX was the name of a standardized home computer architecture in the 1980s. It was a Microsoft-led attempt to create unified standards among hardware makers, conceived by one-time Microsoft Japan executive Kazuhiko Nishi. Despite Microsoft's involvement, MSX-based machines were seldom seen in the United States and Britain, but they were popular in other markets. Eventually 5 million MSX-based units were sold world-wide. Before the appearance and great success of the Nintendo Famicom, MSX was the platform for which major Japanese game studios, such as Konami and Hudson Soft, produced their titles. The Metal Gear series was originally written for MSX hardware. * Processor: Zilog Z80A running at 3.58 MHz * ROM: 32 KB o BIOS (16 KB) o MSX BASIC V1.0 (16 KB) * RAM: 8 KB minimum, most machines provided either 32K or 64K, machines with 128 KB exist * Video Display Processor: Texas Instruments TMS9918 family o Video RAM: 16 KB o Text modes: 40×24 and 32×24 o Resolution: 256×192 (16 colours)  o Sprites: 32, 1 colour, max 4 per horizontal line * Sound chip: General Instrument AY-3-8910 (PSG) This System is preowned but cleaned & tested by trained technician to deliver the best working condition.
