The Sony NGP (Next-Generation Portable) PSP2 pretty much...
device includes dual analog sticks, a 5 inch OLED capacitive
touchscreen, 3G, Bluetooth, and Wi-Fi support. Internally, the device
features a 4 core ARM Cortex-A9 core processor and a 4 core SGX543MP4+
graphics processing unit as well as LiveArea as its main user interface,
which succeeds the XrossMediaBar for the PlayStation Portable.
Holy Shit!!! 4 COUNT'EM ~~4 CORES~~ of Graphical power.... That's WAY more power than I even said would be optional, I only said that I would like a BETTER, not bleeding edge.~~CAUTION:
The following contains highly detailed information that might become
boring to any non-technical staff/members/guests and/or small dogs...
you have been warned~~CPU
the ARM Cortex-A9 CPU has 2GHz typical operation speed (1Ghz per core
in all technical retrospect) with scalable power states for desired
battery maintaining. Has up to 4 coherent cores and can optionally
contain the NEON floating point processing engine. This processor can
come within the powerful 4-core design or the more power-conservative
single core design. This newer CPU can support up to 128kb of L1 cache
and up to 8 MB of L2!!! All of this is capable just by sucking up 250mW
of power per core and can achieve over 4000 DMIPS (Dhrystone Million
Instructions Per Second)
SGX543MP4+ Graphics Processing Unit is a technical marvel by the folks
over at PowerVR (Videocard Manufacturer) This chip is designed with 4
cores of pure power. A quad-core with USSE2 or Universal Scalable Shader
Engine, this engine exceeds the requirements for both OpenGL 2.0 and
Pixel Shader Model 3.0, making this beast both full compliant with the
rules to be 3D and complex 2D capable easily. It's clocked at 200 Mhz
With a 133 MPolygon/s (Million Polygons per second) and a fill rate of 4
GPixel/s (For reference my Radeon HD 5770 has a fill rate of 13.6
GPixel/s) All of this is happening on a 960x544 pixel 5 inch OLED
touchscreen at 220 ppi (pixels per inch) in a 24-bit color alignment.
In short terms... Simply fucking amazing...
*EDIT* Be sure to thank me for my research if you found this information useful.
Basically, it's been confirmed that the CPU is indeed 4 cores and the GPU is also 4 cores. All on a 5-inch 960 x 544 OLED screen with over 16 million colors. What's new is that the screen is supposed to be multi-touch compliant along with a multi-touch back pad. Dual analog sticks and front and rear cameras. They also have a 3-axis gyroscope, and a 3-axis accelerometer. There is also a 3-axis electronic compass for use with the GPS funtions of the device.
All in all, even I would be so inclined to get this. Not right now of course, but certainly later on when the price went down.
PS- Be sure to thank me for the information as it took a lil' bit of research.
BTW: Here's a video of the Vita
