Sony’s NGP (PSP3) Handheld Heavy On The Tech
Wow, the NGP is to the PSP what Tarzan is to Jane, speaking in strict terms of horsepower, and without all the hidden jungle sex. With multiple touchpads, four times the resolution and dual analog sticks, you’d expect it to race past any other handheld, and it will – considering its quad-core Cortex-A9 processor and, on top of that, a quad-core Imagination Technologies PowerVR SGX543MP4+ GPU.
Saying quad-core twice in the same sentence? Didn’t think I’d have to do that until next year at the very least.
And as all good things come to those who wait, such as the doubling of technology – although it’s so predictable there’s little waiting involved these days – the NGP won’t see the light of day until the holiday season, at which time many other super-phones and consoles and tablets will be duking it out harder than Tarzan and Robocop after a couple beers in the octagon.
