Yes, but again, the gfx processor itself is supposed to be the same as the 3GS. The cpu is faster which will help, as will the memory but the gpu is the same which is what they were saying above.

I dont know why they are trying so hard to push games on the prissy apple crowd. don't they know the typical apple user is too good to play games...stop wasting your time. Apple users are self absorbed douches that spend their days in coffee shops wearing berets while hitting on members of the same sex.

its not just apple, its android as well and when devs are making 25 mill + a year on 2$ to 5$ games, then they will push for games on phones. When they have Nintendo declaring apple as their new portable gaming competition then they are doing something right. I dont understand why people hate just cause its apple, when the droid is doing the same thing and might just take over because its not just on one phone.

Iphone came out in 2007 and im more then happy and thank them for what they did to the smartphone industry.

It is not. The gpu in the iphone 4 is a few steps above the 3rd generation graphics unit. Such an upgrade would be required to handle driving 3d at similar frame rates at the much higher resolution display (So even if games wernt optimised for the enhanced graphics, more gpu would be needed to handle the same 3d at the higher resolution).

LOL! I was thinking the same thing. I didn't know Carmack was a nerd...not that there is anything wrong with being a nerd. Some of my best friends are nerds. Some may think I'm a nerd.

I just love it when people just say things without any knowledge of what they are saying!
Iphone 4 has the same gpu as the 3gs.The End!

Maybe this is why Rage is going on 7 years and looks like doom 3 with cars?

You seriously didn't know Carmack was a nerd? The guy does things like build rockets in his spare time and come up with new algorithms for better texture compression. He's THE uber nerd... I think he may also have the droids we're looking for

you might not fit that description, but that describes majority of apple users.
