    • 32 bit pixel depth (including 8 bit alpha channel)
  • up to four TMS 34082 coprocessors (optional)
    • 32 bit math / graphics coprocessor
    • 3D vector support and rendering engine
    • parallel processing capability
    • 40 MFLOPS per piece - 160 MFLOPS total
    • 25,000 shaded polygons per second - 100,000 total
    • 512 kB static RAM per coprocessor
  • up to 16 MB video RAM (4 MB standard)
    • 4 MB: 1024×1024 non-interlaced, 1024×1024 interlaced
    • 8 MB: 1280×1024 non-interlaced, 1600×1280 interlaced

    • 16 MB: 1280×1024 non-interlaced, 2048×2048 interlaced
    • the video memory can also be used as system memory by the Amiga
  • up to 8 MB DRAM for resident applications (4 MB standard)
  • upgrade modules:
    • single graphics math coprocessor upgrade kit (1× TMS 34082) with 128 kB of 32 bit static RAM module (max. 2 per board)
    • double graphics math coprocessor upgrade kit (2× TMS 34082) with 256 kB of 32 bit static RAM module (max. 1 per board)
    • video memory upgrade kit - 4 MB VRAM (max. 4× per board or 3× with video encoder module)
    • program memory upgrade kit - 4 MB DRAM
    • broadcast quality digital video encoder (NTSC, PAL, SVHS)
      • allows high resolution graphics to be taken directly to video tape retaining their broadcast quality
      • supports NTSC or PAL and SVHS
      • genlocks the Vivid 24 using either a sync generator or any external video source
      • plugs into the same location as a video memory module
    • video effects generator (for use with the video encoder module)
      • provides input for two video sources
      • special effects
      • allows the mixing of both sources based on the Vivid 24 computer generated graphics
  • SAGE (Standard Amiga Graphics Environment) driver
