    What are the specs on this thing? I've taken it apart,but the heat sink covering the entire board dose'nt reveal much
    I was just wondering if anyone knew what kind of processor it uses,type of ram graphics......:?: :bounce:

    Well it has roughly 300 mhz processor, only 32 mg's of ram(very contravertial but sony said thats all they neaded) and its very own emotion engine for graphics. The emotion engine has a 150 mhz clock speed and is capable of 75 million polygons per second. While this is quite low compared to X-Box the graphical quality is very similer.
    P.S. By the way you just voided your warrenty
    What the fcuk happened to my sig?

    Sorry i forgot to add that the sound is 48 sound channel dolby 5.1 surround sound and that the 32 mg's or ram is RAMBUS DRAM:devil:

    Still one question though...how does a 300hmz processor,32 mb of rdram dram,and an emotion engine, load 4.3 gigabyte games in seconds and never hangs,always boots up in seconds, and kicks the crap out of any pc's gaming performance....:cry: :cry: :cry: :grr: :grr: :grr:

    Because, like most things, you shouldn't rely on specifications to judge products... It's like Mac CPUs vs x86 CPUs... clock speed is only half, but still performs close to the same...

    True,but still, how is the ps2 able to be so efficient and fast? with only specs that would have been blazing fast 4 years ago

    Again, because you are only looking at specs, and not how the machine uses them. First of all, you can't compare consoles to personal computers in relation to clock speeds. That's just not right. With consoles, they are made for one purpose only - gaming. This means the producer of the console can build the machine with instruction sets and procedures that will be benefical to games, and that developers know exactly what they are working with when they create their games, and can refine the system.

    There's no large variety of configurable software / hardware on consoles, nor is there going to be various drivers to work with, or conflicting hardware, nor major operating systems that are made for many things. What you see is pretty much what you get in a console. As opposed to a PC where there's hundreds of operating systems, millions of configurations of hardware / software, applications for who knows what, and the ability to pretty much run anything. PC's aren't made just for gaming, and no operating system represents this.

    So again, forget specification comparisons between PCs and consoles...

    it still wouldn't work. As people have various hardware configurations, different software, etc... there will never be anything like that.
