What is Commodore 128?
The Commodore 128, which came on the market in 1985, was the last 8-bit computer in the Commodore series. After that, the company focused on IBM machines and other designs. The Commodore 128 had 128k RAM and a Zilog Z80 CPU, which enabled the machine to run in a separate mode with a control program / monitor or CP / M operating system.
The Commodore 128 was pursued by Commodore for compatibility and versatility after Jack Tramiel left Atari months earlier. The Commodore had to compete with the Atari ST line. To this end, Commodore, under lead engineer Bill Herd, produced something that was more versatile and powerful than the original 64, and also more stylish. The Commodore 128 was replaced by various 16/32 Amiga designs.
