History[edit | edit source]

The design of the Atari Panther was influenced by the Konix Multisystem.

The Atari Panther was supposed to release in 1991, but was ultimately scraped in favor of development on the Atari Jaguar.[1][2]

A development system for the Atari Panther was produced,[3] which shows significant investment from Atari in the concept.

Technology[edit | edit source]

The primary Panther CPU was a Motorola 68000 clocked at 16 megahertz.[1] The Panther also used a 32-bit graphics processor clocked at 32 megahertz.[3][1]

Audio was handled by an Ensoniq ES5505 OTIS sound processor clocked at 8 megahertz and with support for up to 32 channels of PCM audio.[4][5]
