The Acorn A3010 was released in 1992 and was one of two computers that were intended to replace the Acorn BBC A3000 computer. The A3010's sister machine was the A3020.

There were two major revisions of the Acorn A3010. The early version shipped before the Acorn ARM250 SOC was ready and so, Acorn used its existing ARM2 chipset mounted on a mezzanine board to provide the same functionality as the ARM250
