Gamespot: Sony NGP Processor Performance

Gamespot: Sony’s recently announced NGP contains a quad-core ARM Cortex A9 CPU and PowerVR SGX543MP4+ GPU. Both chips are fairly new on the block and Sony didn’t elaborate too much on the exact configuration or clock speed of the chips involved. We dug up the base specs on both chips, but we don’t know exactly how they’re going to be configured inside of the NGP.

@redwolf: It's pretty much useless method of not saying typical users what it can do in practice or in games.

But to put it clear, they've pretty much managed to put PS3 into a handheld format.

@jack who
Yes it is like cars > wheels but...

It would be much easier for a company that specializes in cars like "volkswagen" to make a fully functional car, than it would be for a company that only makes tyres for cars like "goodyear" to design and build a car...

Therefore volkswagen > goodyear in car manufacture,
in the same way that Sony > Microsoft in console manufacture.

Damn soco, every time I see it I just want to punch that dude on your pic IN THE FACE!

DA_SHREDDER2611d ago

It pretty much says that it is pretty comparable to the ps3. Nice.

AndrewRyan2611d ago

I'm not surprised. The PS3 is about 5 year old tech now.

MintBerryCrunch2611d ago

a 10 lb machine that has generated some of the best games this gen NOW fits comfortably in your hands....

old tech you say??

AndrewRyan2611d ago

I never said old tech you incompetent moron. I said it is "5 year old tech", because it is 5 years old. I love the PS3 and love many of the games the cell allows. Learn to fucking comprehend sentences.

Studio-YaMi2611d ago (Edited 2611d ago )

a processor like this can easily play anything on the level of PS3



This Japanese site caught all of the presentation I think,and there is a picture of Philip Earl from activision taking the stage

SasanovaS19872611d ago

i think your like the only 1 who didnt watch the live blog as it went on. all these pics and videos were streaming to thousands of viewers at home :X but hey, if you didnt hear it, its new to you ;)

Studio-YaMi2611d ago (Edited 2611d ago )

that's the problem,I was sleeping and didn't watch the life blogs u__u..

But yeah,Kudos to me then xD

Xwow20082611d ago

The tech is great but whats more important that sony got the tools ready for developers to use..and from what i read it will be very flexible and friendly to program(sony learned from what happened with ps3)

pain777pas2611d ago

You are spot on. Meaning that the launch lineup will be robust. The ports of RR and Wipeout will be easy. The only thing they will do is implement the touch screen for existing games that may be better than their console counterparts. Kojima with this system is history in the making though. He will use every aspect of the system cleverly and with gameplay in mind. One of the best MGS games incoming for this system.
