MSX Computer Roms Details

MSX: One of the home and learning computer standards released in 1983. The most active MSX startup computers were companies: Yamaha, Panasonic, Sony and Toshiba. The largest spread of the MSX computer took place in Japan, South America (even the 32-bit version of MSX-TurboZ with Z380 processor was introduced) and Europe (especially France) instead. In the USSR, all educational institutions and some universities have received the Yamaha MSX 1 from the Ministry of Education and then the MSX 2 computers.

The MSX computer standard was developed jointly by ASCII and Microsoft companies with the aim of providing a platform for branded software based on the Microsoft Basic language. MSX was designed by Kazuhiko Nishi, a Japanese programmer who worked at Microsoft. He tried to create the only standard by which any company could build its own compatible computer.

MSX Computer was based on the Zilog Z80 processor, just like the one used in ZX Spectrum computers, but operated at a higher frequency: 4 MHz. These computers were originally intended to be a conventional floppy disk drive and floppy disks with a capacity of 720 KB. Compared to the ZX Spectrum tapes, it was a big leap in technology: a floppy could fit into a game archive, the programs we now call "Office" and a complete software development kit.
