Kirk_Johnston Posted December 8, 2022 Share Posted December 8, 2022 (edited) We've all heard this mentioned a billion times in recent years, and this is a great video that basically shows the same (although, the guy accidently had the SNES running in SlowROM 2.68 MHz mode at 75% full speed rather than the full 3.58 MHz mode the system actually operates at, unfortunately): But, I find is strange that we rarely hear the people saying the SNES CPU is slower also talking about the difference in say the VDPs and other stuff too: It took eight additional months for that second video to appear, which is a long time for only one part of the information and one side of the narrative to be available. And, I have no doubt there's a whole bunch of other things that haven't been covered similarly, which might also be of value to know about when discussing the relative capabilities of all these classic consoles. It think it's important to keep in mind that these classic consoles aren't defined by just one hardware component, and any conversations we have around them, especially in terms of which one can do what and so on, should at least include all the information or as much as possible, just so everyone has a more complete picture to form an opinion and/or judgement on. This is all very interesting stuff, but it can be taken out of context and interpreted and fed back incorrectly if not handled properly. That's all I'm doing here, posting both the videos together and at the same time. Hopefully you learned so new information today that's of interest to you too, especially about the SNES, which we're in this specific SNES forum to discuss and celebrate as a system I presume we all love, either from our childhoods or as something we discovered in recent times. PS. Here's a link to a thread from another forum, which is what made me think about posting something here too: http://gendev.spritesmind.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=22&t=3339 Edited December 8, 2022 by Kirk_Johnston 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
