From The Looks Of It...
The NGP will probably utilize the 4 cores like this:
1 Core for hypervisor and game OS only. Closed off to developers.
3 Cores for application usage, open to developers.
So in other words, developers will not have access to the kernel and will have to use system calls... But that is the norm these days.
The CPU will probably have:
Minimum of 1.0 GHz
a 512K L2 shared cache
each core will have 32K data cache and 32K Instruction cache
16 32bit general purpose registers (that is double the x86, there are only 8 in the x86)
32 64bit (double precision) floating point registers
Oh... I can't wait for this to get hacked and opened up... I would LOVE to develop for this piece of beauty. hacker:sos:
Any one know how much RAM it will have? And the speed?
edit: actually, do you think Sony will set up some kind of indie scene like for the iOS and Android and 360 has right now?
Rumors say that it has 1GB RAM. No info on the speed of RAM.
I hope Sony will setup that kind of scene for the NGP. Developers would be more than happy, and the NGP would be even more popular.
Man, if this can play Modern Warfare 3 vs someone on a PS3 I'll rip my pants off and eat them
That's nasty. Hope you have clean pants by that time. :p
Tbh, PS3 users would have a better advantage in these games (if the NGP was ever linked with the PS3 games network).
Well from the looks of it, the Playstation Suites might be opened up to indie developers, but I haven't heard any news of them doing that.
I don't think that they gonna have the same network.

I have a feeling that Sony is gonna say that their NGP is "unhackable" just like the PSP Go and PS3.....well i think they might have been wrong on that one
