    This Quake demo looks pretty impressive, hope its not a fake. After seeing that i've been doing some looking around and have found the iPOT has a Power VR MBX chip probably running at around 100Mhz. Quite simular to the one in my Dell X50v only a few generations newer clocked faster and it includes the VGP.

    My View.......

    Im guessing the capabilities should be around 3 million polys which makes it quite a bit more powerful than the Nintendo DS but also quite a bit less powerful than the PSP.

    Theres a good write up on the chip here -> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PowerVR

    I did see an interesting quote on the site above "Thanks to the performance of the PowerVR2, several Dreamcast games such as Quake III Arena could rival their PC counterparts in quality and performance" so Quake 3 is not that far fetched.

    Interested in others views on what the iPOT will be able to do when it comes to games, i think with some pretty powerful graphics, touch and accelerometer they should be able to produce some pretty sweet games.

    Very very interesting. I didn't know the GPU was that powerful.

    Yeah this is really promising. Hopefully we'll be seeing some great games on the way in June.
