    Some people were asking for a Real Time Clock.

    The MMSP2+ adds support for the RTC where MMSP2 lacked this.

    This'll mean a lithium battery on the board, so it is likely that it will have a RTC.

    The thing is, If you want people to read your (And maybe comment on, Or even reply to your) post, At the very least, You should have the common decency to make your posts readable. How the bloody hell are you going to receive feedback or relevant replies/comments on what you have written, If no one can read or understand a bloody word you have written or point/s you are trying to make.

    Some stupid words that get on my nerves: U, teh, then instead of than and vice versa, tehy, etc etc etc.

    I know people make mistakes, We all do, But at least put a bit of effort in to it. This isn`t a psp forum you know.

    It`s down to laziness, Pure laziness.

    What a crock of shit! This is an internet forum, people will use abbreviations - there's no point being an anal bitch about it. Since when was a stupid fuckin smily face part of the English language? Try writing that in an essay, you will get killed. Chill the fuck out and get back on topic!

    Well you must adore my song then?
    Ok i will reask my question
    Zod have you tried out your playstation emulator on the new system. I think craig should show what the system can do. What i mean is the system is probably a bunch of wires and parts soldered together connected to a screen right now and I just want to see what the system can do and what the firmware is like.

    Hmm... 99 pages and I just saw this thread...

    Anyway, I support a new console. Sadly, the GP2X was kind of outdated the day it was released (unlike the GP32, which was king for years).

    From the sound of it, this new console is also going to be somewhat outdated upon its release as well (if it's based on the MMSP2+ anyway). In terms of hardware, it's only really a slightly higher spec GP2X, with a few more addons. I guess it could be compared to the difference between the Gamecube and a Wii; more ram, a faster processor, a better user interface and a few other bits and pieces.
    Unfortunately there isn't really any alternative, so this is the best we can get.

    Who knows, if Craig makes a big enough profit from this upcoming device, there could be another one proceeding it in a couple of years time featuring the up to date specification everyone is wanting.

    I don't quite agree... from what we can gather off the sketchy documentation available, the clock speed is almost double, the memory speed is more than double, there's a nice extra chunk of "cache memory", and Squidge has hinted that the two processors will each get their own dedicated memory. Between all of that, I would say that casual 2D apps will be roughly twice as fast on this new device, and apps that make use of the (now attractive) second processor might be 3 times as fast as on the gp2x. Then, add the 3D features making a new class of things possible.

    The MMSP2+ might not be the cream of the mobile processor crop (like the processors that go into the top end $500 and up devices), a 2-3x speedup isn't bad.

    The much more interesting wildcard is the display resolution -- about five times as many pixels as the gp2x, if the 800x480 info is true. Computing and transfering that much data every frame will be a strain. My guess is that action games might use a lower resolution than that (400x240) much of the time, with the true full resolution for picture viewing, web browsing, and so on. 800 pixels in 3.7 inches is a pretty amazing pixel density!

    Indeed, I will get this just for a web browser :) And is it nto plausible we run firefox on this thing? I mean, I've run it on a 550mhz PC with 96MB of ram! This was also on linux and there was still 20MB of RAM free! I am pretty sure I was using 76MB of RAM, and of course no swap. I mean, the browser wouldn't need to run lightening fast as you wouldn't be multitasking as you would on a PC. Ofcourse flash won't run at all.

    Tabs would have to be disabled though. Cause at the moment, Firefox uses 135mb of RAM... says my OM3. 2 tabs open.
