q40.de - Overview
Q40 and Q60 are Sinclair QL successors that are more than 100 times faster, have many thousands of colours, high resolution graphics, stereo sound, fast harddisks and modern peripheral capabilities. New complete computers that run your QL software and open the door to unreached 68060 performance and advanced applications.
A complete Q40 or Q60 System is a Q40 or Q60 Mainboard in combination with IDE Harddisk and HD Floppy mounted in an industry standard case with power supply, and a MF-102 keyboard.
QL screen modes 4 and 8 are directly hardware compatible, ignoring mode 8 flashing. The 50 Hz frame interrupt is available. Memory map and interrupt handling are similar, but ports have changed. Microdrives and the slow QL network are not supported.
