We have already reported some of the specs of the much anticipated new Sony handheld device and we are all pretty blown away so far. What has just been mentioned now though is the processor that is in the device.
The Sony NGP will really pack a punch as it has the latest technology built into its mainframe. It has a Quad-core ARM Cortex-A9 processor (SGX543MP) within, which will take handheld gaming to a new level. Not only that but it also has a quad-core GPU as well. The more we hear about this new PSP the more we like it.
It hasn’t lost any of the features it had previously such as the WiFi connectivity but it also brings in Bluetooth 2.1 as we expected, the normal square, triangle, circle and cross buttons are still there but are joined by a 5” OLED touch-screen that looks fantastic and 3G connectivitiy. You can read more about the processor over at Engadget where Vlad Savov has written an article. If you want to learn more about the processor and it’s capabilities then head over to ARM’s official webpage.
It looks like Sony has been going into overdrive in the past 2 days, first they allow a PSP phone (otherwise known as the Xperia PlayStation Phone) out into the open, they have released a new update for the PS3 as Alan Ng reports on PRNews and also the NGP. Well played Sony!
