In 1993 September Commodore released its last Amiga and the world's first 32 bit game console, the CD32. Based on the AGA chip set and a CD-ROM drive, it lacked many features of the A1200, but also had features exclusive in the Amiga range.
68020 @ 14 MHz
All CD32s have a 68EC020 @ 14.28 MHz soldered to their motherboard. Upgrading the processor requires the use of a processor board which can be installed into the expansion slot.
2 MB Chip RAM
The CD32 has 2 MB 70 ns Chip RAM soldered to its motherboard which could not be expanded further.
Alice - AGA display controller
Although the CD32 has the same AGA chip set as the A1200, there is no output provided for the doubled productivity screen modes. This limits the available resolutions of the base model to:
All screenmodes offer up to 256 colours from a 24 bit palette, or 262144 colours in HAM8 mode.
1× expansion slot
The 182 pin expansion slot allows the connection of the FMV module, processor boards or other system expansions.
The CD32 was not built with expandibility in mind, thus it has a small amount of upgrade options. Look up its expansions from the database.
The CD32 features a double speed (330 kB/sec) top-loading CD-ROM drive. The supported CD formats are ISO-9660 CD-ROM, Audio CD, CD+G.

To get the usual Amiga expansion ports (RGB, serial, parallel, floppy, IDE) a system expansion has to be attached to the 182 pin connector.
