[* black] The chipset of the launch model featured two MOS Technologies chips for the CPU, RAM, and I/O, as well as a custom chip from Atari to handle the audio and video processing.
[* black] Atari's custom chip, the '''T'''elevision '''I'''nterface '''A'''dapter [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Television_Interface_Adapter|(TIA)] is the moneymaker of the 2600, as it allowed for multiple colors, increased graphic capabilities, and sound.
[* black] This chipset boasted:
[* black] 1.19MHz 8-bit processor
[* black] 128 bytes RAM (thats '''''bytes''''' not kB)
[* black] 192 x 160 screen resolution
[* black] 16 colors, 4 onscreen
[* black] Unlike previous consoles, where the games were stored on internal chips, the games for the 2600 are stored in '''R'''ead '''O'''nly '''M'''emory (ROM) chips housed in external cartridges. This allowed for a potentially infinite number of playable games for the 2600.
