Qualcomm Snapdragon more powerful than Nintendo Wii?

Posted on Tuesday, July 07 2009 @ 01:21:37 CEST by

Bright Side of News claims the graphics performance of the Qualcomm Snapdragon platform is better on paper than the ATI Hollywood GPU that is inside the Nintendo Wii console:
But the real beast is the integrated graphics subsystem. Snapdragon comes with a 3D processor capable of outputting 80 million triangles/sec and 500 million pixels/sec. Pixel Fillrate of 500M pixel/sec is on the levels of GeForce 6200, but texture fillrate is still in Riva TNT territory. Given the specifications of ATI Hollywood GPU inside the Nintendo Wii console [486.000 Pixels/sec - Hollywood has 4 Pixel Pipelines, but there are only 2 ROP units inside its eDRAM], we see that that Qualcomm's Snapdragon actually packs more 3D punch that the best selling gaming console on the market.

This opens a completely new level of play for smartbooks - can smartbook gaming actually come to life and wipe out PlayStation Portable and Nintendo DS? Only time will tell.
