Oric 1

The Oric-1 by Oric Products International Ltd had a 6502A processor running at 1 MHz. Two models were availaible, one with 16K of memory the other with 48K.

It was developed to compete with the successful ZX Spectrum, but only about 160,000 units were sold in the UK and another 50,000 in France. It was just slightly cheaper then the ZX Spectrum at £169 for the 48K version.

The Oric 1 had a programmable GI 8912 sound chip and two video outputs, RF for a television and RGB.
