Super-rumour – “PSP2″ to have quad-core GPU

Tuesday, 7th July 2009 10:22 GMT By Patrick Garratt

psp2 is rumouring that PowerVR technology from Imagination Technologies will form the basis of the still-in-development PSP2.

The site’s sources claim that a quad-core iteration of the low-power SGX543MP chip, codenamed “Hydra”, will be present in the next generation handheld. This is the next next one. Not PSP Go.

    From the DF report: “While specs like this are always subject to interpretation, these figures are a ballpark match for the original Xbox.”

    That’s nice, but cutting edge graphics aren’t that important in handhelds.
    Infact, the most popular portable gaming systems at this moment have the worst graphics (DS, Iphone). What matter is ease of use and good games.

    Super Rumor – PSP2 requires an addon power brick to power it, or that it has half the battery life of an Iphone playing a 3d game.
