Re: SEGA Lindbergh Arcade Board Naked - GPU Shown to be 2004-era GeForce 6 series
Arcades are still going very strong in japan, in america though there are barely any around. We rarely get any of the new arcade games.
As for the new arcade board, its powerful because unlike a PC its specialized for a single application. You all compare bare numbers but never the software behind it. There are many games on consoles that look just as good as a PC game thanks to being specialized hardware. I mean look at MGS3, it looks DAM good for a game running on a 300mhz CPU with a 4MB GPU. Don't judge a game platform on numbers....
BTW Most games released on this system will probably be ported over to the PS3 due to the nature of the systems being very similar.
