The A3000, also known as the Commodore Amiga 3000, was a much more serious proposition to build a professional multimedia computer than the previous A2000 effort.
The Amiga 3000 came in a desktop box with a separate keyboard. It featured:
- a Motorola 68030 processor.
- a 68881 or 68882 FPU coprocessor
- the ECS chipset.
- a SCSI interface.
- a built-in 'flicker fixer' which enabled the use of a VGA monitor.
Other models included the A3000UX bundled with UNIX System V Release 4, and the A3000T tower computer.
The A3000 designation was also used on an Acorn Archimedes model.
