- The Graphics
Development Laboratory A-1000 (Aurora-1000) was the first true high
performance graphics board AutoCAD supported. The A-1000 was a high
resolution (512 x 480) 16 colour board with a high-level command
set including true polygon fill, multiple cursor types, and window and
viewport support on-board. Its capabilities encouraged implementation
of congruent facilities in AutoCAD, and exerted an influence on the
design of the package still felt today.
