The qualifier was "assuming we run into graphical limitations in the
first place." :-)

The user manual does have some interesting clues as to what the
performance *should* be:

Although the S3C2410 is at the core of the Neo1973, until we start
experimenting with the SoC and integrated components in hardware, I
think we are in speculation land, based upon the premise "In theory
there is no difference between theory and reality - in reality, there

But I did a lot of optimisation for 8bit/16bit games as a kid, and as
the Neo1973 is far more powerful than those platforms, I am confident
we can find ways to exceed expectations which may arise from a simple
comparison between the phone specs and modern desktop systems!
