When I read the title I thought "wow, the dreamcast is being used as a benchmark for computing power. That's pretty cool."And then I read the article and realised it was said by some Sega PR guy.Not so impressed now.

one reason why the iPhone isn't as powerful as the Dreamcast: Dedicated GPU.

Apple and SEGA find more things in common - they're both full of fucking fail.

Two once great companies...OSX can just shove it's cock in a live PSU.The use of Intel in Macs is just corruption of the most unwholesome kind, it's rape, it's bastardisation.

You guys are being way too fickle about an operating system. I don't see the Macfags at my site defend the OS as much as you guys are bashing it.I mean, at least it's not linux.

oh no it isn't the OS that is bad, it's the iPhone. Apple really did fuck up there; it's over rated and underpowered. there are so many better touch phones out there, I don't get the hype at all.

http://youtube.com/watch?v=hSxQn1ds03EI spoke with an iPhone game developer and he said that the iPhone does offer hardware accelerated rendering, and it uses PVR and OpenGL ES

It's not like Doom or Quake are hardcore in terms of CPU usage though - hell, I was running Quake on my Pocket PC back in 2000.

I'm ashamed to admit I did consider getting the iPhone on contract, as I would've got a discounted tariff. Alas, the Samsung INNOV8 caught my eye with its lovely 8 Megapixel camera, Wifi and DivX playback. The bastard is big, but then so is my N95.

Yeah, it's a very silly name. Then again most phone names are.
