    The DS has a 90 MHZ CPU and the iPad has over 10X the MHz and the iPhone/iPod4 have 880 MHz.

    If ZotTTD creates a GPU-accelerated emu like they did with the N64 one giving an extra 200 MHz of power as well as 4 programmable pipelines/shader cores, the new devices should easily handle DS emulation right?

    Lol. My computer has 1.66 GHZ duo core, and DeSMuMe is recommending a 3.2GHZ duo core...

    Is this a bump? It would not be possible, where would I have a second screen anyway, and my desktop with so much add-on ram and hyper processor it runs ds emulator at a little less than 100%, face the facts, its not designed to, probably best to not do it.

    A DS emulator is already in the works as far as I know, it was started a while ago, around the time 4.0 was released.

    Really? Where can I find one so I can possibly port my GTA on without spending 600 mb of space?

    It hasn't been released, not even a beta (as far as I know).

    No$ is designed to use less system resources and does not utilise Duo cores. DesMuMe has optimal graphics, sound has non-existent choppiness, it support GBA packs in and Pal Parking in fourth Generation Pokemon games. It also has experimental Wifi functionality (Once someone actually made it onto GTS) and has advanced rendering.

    It supports Save states (where for DS No$ supports none) and can save in a vast variety of games, more than No$.

    It is also currently in development, whereas development of No$ has stopped.

    Whatever reasoning everyone has, I highly DOUBT that even fifth gen iDevices will have the processing capabilities required for reasonable DS emulation.

    And trust me, I've used DeSMuMe and the graphics are amazing as far as I'm concerned, whereas No$'s are awful and hardly bearable, with off colours.
