The Talent DPC-300 is the adaptation for Chile and Uruguay of the Daewoo CPC-300.

It was manufactured by Daewoo, but Talent refused to release it in Argentina. Most of these machines were sold in Chile.

The Talent DPC-300 is a MSX2 that does not use a MSX-Engine but a custom IC DW64MX1 that includes the 8255 PPI, slot select circuitry, a memory mapper and various glue logic. The CPU is a Z80A from Goldstar (GSS Z8400A PS).

The main RAM is present on slot 0-2, a configuration that can cause poorly written software to crash. Also, with this layout, the POKE-1,(15-PEEK(-1)\16)*17 trick to workaround buggy software that does not handle subslots properly will cause this machine to freeze.
