Description Edit | History

The VG 8020 was Philips' third MSX 1 computer, after the VG8000 (which did not even have a printer port) and the VG8010 computers.

This version had a real keyboard, not a chiclet keyboard like its predecessors. The VG-8020 was released in 1984 and featured a Zilog Z80A microprocessor clocked at 3.56 MHz, 64KB of RAM, 16KB of VRAM, and two cartridge slots.

User summary
CPU: Zilog Z80 @ 3.6 MHz

Graphic chip: Texas Instrument TMS9918A
Video RAM: 16 Kb
Resoltion (text): 40 x 32 (monochrom)

May not be compatible with all MSX software, but typing poke -1,170 before loading programs usually fix the bug which origins from differences in the chipset.

Despite being a Philips it was not manufactured by Philips, but was manufactured by Kyocera. This is not noted on lables on the console.
