"Latest Issue of Famitsu had this to say about Lindberg:

We've already shared hands-on impressions of Sega's first next generation arcade game, House of the Dead 4, but we never really got the full word on the specifications behind the board off which the game was claimed to be running. The latest issue of Famitsu has the details we've been looking for on the so-called Lindberg arcade board.

According to the magazine, Lindberg sports an Intel Pentium 4 Processor running at 3.0 gigahertz. The board includes a gigabyte of main memory. For the board's graphics unit, Sega has gone with an NVIDIA chip with 256 megabytes memory. Sound is handled by a 3D audio synthesizer chip capable of 5.1 channels and 64 simultaneous sounds. Games are set to be distributed on DVD.

Sega will be showing this board off at the JAMMA arcade show, set to open its doors at a convention center near Tokyo on Thursday. According to Famitsu, Sega will show video footage of Virtua Fighter 5, After Burner, The House of the Dead 4. These three were also shown at E3 in video form. It's unknown if we'll be getting a new look, or if Sega will share the same footage.

In addition to these titles, Famitsu is home to two new Lindberg announcements. Power Smash 3 (the series known as Virtua Tennis in America) will be shown in video form at the show. Former head of AM2, Yu Suzuki, will show video footage of Psy-Phi (pronounced "Sci-Fi"), an original battle shooting game that uses a touch screen for control.

Here are the full specs of the Lindberg board as revealed by Famitsu:

CPU: Intel Pentium Processor 3.0Ghz with 1 Megabyte L2 Cache, Hyper Threading Compatible, 800MHz FSB
