📕 Description [fr]

Un ensemble de liens vers des ressources ou documentations relatives à l'émulation de la console de jeu ATARI Jaguar.

L'ATARI Jaguar est une console de jeu 16 bits épaulée par 2 co-processeurs (l'un dénommé "Tom", un GPU RISC 32 bits, l'autre dénommé "Jerry", un DSP RISC 32 bits) sortie en 1993.


🌍️ Wikipedia :

La Jaguar est une console de jeux vidéo de salon à cartouches datant de 1993, disposant d'une ludothèque limitée, et qui n'a pas connu un grand succès malgré sa technologie innovante. C’est la dernière console produite par Atari1.

Spécifications techniques

Processeurs

• « Tom » (contient 2 processeurs vidéo et un CPU Risc), 25,59 MHz
⚬ Processeur graphique (GPU) – 32-bit architecture RISC, 4 kio de cache interne, avec un jeu d'instructions riche
⚬ C'est le processeur principal de la console.
⚬ Processeur objet 64 bits – processeur vidéo programmable
⚬ Blitter 64 bits – opérations logiques à haute vitesse, tampon de profondeur et ombrage Gouraud
⚬ Contrôleur mémoire 64 bits DRAM
⚬ Résolution de 720 × 526 pixels, avec une palette de 16 millions de couleurs
• « Jerry », 26,6 MHz
⚬ Processeur de signal numérique (DSP) – architecture Risc 32 bits, 8 kio de cache interne, jeu d'instructions similaire au GPU à part quelques exceptions qui sont des instructions dédiées au son
⚬ Tables d'ondes, synthèse FM et synthèse AM
⚬ Son qualité CD (16 bits stéréo)
⚬ Nombre de canaux uniquement limité par le logiciel
⚬ 2 contrôleurs de manettes ; l’extension TeamTap permettait d’étendre ce nombre à 4
• Motorola 68000 à 13,295 MHz utilisé (en principe) comme manageur

Autres caractéristiques

• RAM : 2 Mio sur un bus 64 bits
• Support : cartouche (jusqu'à 6 Mio) ou CD (790 Mio) via l'extension JagCD
• Port DSP (JagLink)
• Connecteur moniteur (composite/S-video/RGB)

🌍️ Wikipedia :

The Atari Jaguar is a video game console that was released by Atari Corporation in 1993. It was the last to be marketed under the Atari brand until the release of the Atari Flashback in 2004. It was designed to surpass the Mega Drive/Genesis, Super Nintendo Entertainment System, and the Panasonic 3DO in processing power. Although launched one year earlier, it was eventually in competition with the Sega Saturn, the PlayStation, and other consoles that made up the fifth generation of video game consoles. The console was first released in New York City and San Francisco in 1993, and the rest of the US in early 1994. Although it was marketed as the first 64-bit gaming system, the Jaguar proved to be a commercial failure and prompted Atari to leave the home video game console market. Despite its commercial failure, the Jaguar has a dedicated fan base that produces homebrew games for it. It was the last console from an American company until the 2001 introduction of Microsoft's Xbox.

Technical specifications

Jaguar is a custom chip set primarily intended to be the heart of a very high-performance games/leisure computer. It may also be used as a graphics accelerator in more complex systems, and applied to workstation and business uses. As well as a general purpose CPU, Jaguar contains four processing units. These are the Object Processor, Graphics Processor, Blitter, and Digital Sound Processor. Jaguar provides these blocks with a 64-bit data path to external memory devices, and is capable of a very high data transfer rate into external dynamic RAM.

Processors

• "Tom" Chip, 26.59 MHz
⚬ Graphics processing unit (GPU) – 32-bit RISC architecture, 4 KB internal cache, all graphics effects are software based.
⚬ Core has some additional instructions intended for 3D operations
⚬ Object Processor – 64-bit non-programmable; provides all video output from system.
⚬ Blitter – 64-bit high speed logic operations, z-buffering and Gouraud shading, with 64-bit internal registers.
⚬ DRAM controller, 8, 16, 32 and 64-bit memory management
• "Jerry" Chip, 26.59 MHz
⚬ Digital Signal Processor – 32-bit RISC architecture, 8 KB internal cache
⚬ Similar RISC core as the GPU, additional instructions intended for audio operations
⚬ CD-quality sound (16-bit stereo)
⚬ Number of sound channels limited by software
⚬ Two DACs (stereo) convert digital data to analog sound signals
⚬ Full stereo capabilities
⚬ Wavetable synthesis, FM synthesis, FM Sample synthesis, and AM synthesis
⚬ A clock control block, incorporating timers, and a UART
⚬ Joystick control
• Motorola 68000 "used as a manager".
⚬ General purpose 16/32-bit control processor, 13.295 MHz

Other Jaguar features

• RAM: 2 MB on a 64-bit bus using 4 16-bit fast page mode DRAMs
• Storage: ROM cartridges – up to 6 MB
• DSP-port (JagLink)
• Monitor-port (Composite/S-Video/RGB)
• Antenna-port (UHF/VHF) Fixed at 591 MHz in Europe
⚬ Not present on French model
• Support for ComLynx I/O
• NTSC/PAL machines can be identified by their power LED colour, Red = NTSC, Green = PAL
