    OR:

    The iPhones have more background processes than the iPod Touch does? I mean, they did say that it has a new CPU. But it can't be THAT much faster right? Not a higher clock speed?

    this means roms for gba and psx would theoretically perform faster on 2G ipod touch than on the 1G..interesting

    In part, the differences stem from the fact that the 2nd Generation iPod Touch had its processor quietly boosted to 532MHz. Meanwhile, the iPhone 3G, Original iPhone and 1st Generation iPod Touch run at 412MHz. However, the differences must extend beyond this simple change, as there seem to be substantial performance differences between the similarly-clocked models as well.

    From Handheld Games Corp's experience, the 2nd Generation iPod touch is the fastest model "by far", followed by the iPhone 3G, iPhone and finally the 1st Generation iPod touch lagging behind (at least with respect to 3D gaming). Due to these differences, Handheld Games Corp's CEO does not recommend anyone interested in gaming to even consider buying a used 1st Generation iPod touch.

    Anyone who owns a 1st generation iPod, and has used a 2nd generation iPod could have told you this. The applications open 10x faster. Well not 10x, but faster.

    Yes but you didn't know it was boosted from 412mhz to 532MHz

    I agree though, as SOON as you use a 2g your blown away with how fast and responsive they are over the 1g.
