Generation Fourth generation

The Atari Lynx was a handheld console released by Atari in 1989. Notably, it was the world's first handheld system that used a color LCD screen, as well as having fairly advanced graphics for the time.

Unlike contemporaneous machines, its architecture is based upon a frame buffer and a scaling blitter, providing both 2d sprite and background scaling and hardware support for lines and filled triangles. Because it has no inherent concept of a tile map or any sprite-specific hardware, the drawing budget is per frame rather than per line; there is no enforced limit in terms of the number of sprites or sprites per line other than that implied by the amount of drawing that can be achieved within an acceptable frame rate.
