Full Specifications

Designed by NIIVK (ru: НИИВК) — Scientific Research Unit for Computational Machines — the Агат (en: agate) was a Soviet made Apple ][+ clone.


Developed between 1981 and 1983, the Агат was the Soviet Union's first ever 8-bit home computer. It was first released in 1984 at the CeBIT computer expo in Hannover, Germany and remained in production until 1990.

What you got in the box was the system unit itself — housing the processor and the computer's single, 5¼" floppy disk drive – a 74-key Russian layout keyboard; and a choice of three monitors: one monochrome; two colour. One of the latter was based on the Юность-404 (en: Yunost – meaning 'Youth') television set. The Агат's СМ630Р (en: SM630R) processor was effectively a clone of the 6502.

Like most Soviet technology, the Агат was solidly built and this was reflected in its weight: a hefty 9 kg (19.8 lbs).
