Previous ChapterTable of ContentsNext Chapter


Released in 1985, the 130XE is the high-end version of the 65XE.  The 130XE
offers 128K RAM, plus the FREDDIE memory management chip, supporting the
unique (but rarely used) ability for the 6502 and the ANTIC to independently
access RAM banks.  In addition, the 130XE replaces the PBI port with the
Enhanced Cartridge Interface (ECI), continuing the powerful feature of a fast
parallel port.

Normally boots with Atari BASIC (Revision C) enabled; Hold down [Option] on
startup to boot without BASIC.
