Hi everyone,

I'm waiting for the release of the new Xcale PPC but I was wondering, do you think that they will be able to emulate SNES, GBA, Neo Geo, Genesis at full speed? with or withoud sound? Will they be compatible with MIPS and ARM?

Thanks for your answers!

Hard to say what will run and how fast. I am sure we will see speed improvements, whether they are double or triple is hard to tell. Keep in mind that there is still no display memory or advanced display tools such as DirectX. So, improvements may not be as much as some speculate.

AS for CPU comaptibility, MIPS is no longer supported by MS. I think the XScale CPUs are ARM processors.
