HAHAHA PS1 Specs, it's Crap!

CPU

R3000A 32bit RISC chip @ 33.8mhz - Manufactured by LSI Logic Corp.
Clearing capacity: 30 MIPS
Bus bandwidth: 132 Mb/sec

As stated above, a very kuel CPU, slamming the 68000 in the Jaguar and the ARM 60 in the 3DO, even the Hitachis in the Saturn! A high bus bandwith is important when using lots of colors in fast moving animations! (Like Tohshinden)
3D Geometry Engine

High speed matrix calculator
Clearing capacity: 66 MIPS
1.5 million flat-shaded polygons/sec
500,000 texture-mapped and light-sourced polygons/sec

Ahhh, the key to the ultimate 3D performance. Note, however that the above specs are rather optimistic. There is a slight difference between displaying random polygons on screen and calculating whether or not a polygon will be visible or not as the arm is lifted in defense, then shown according to the position it is in. Toshinden achieves 80.000 of the latter polygons, a very impressive number for such an early game. Expect this to increase as the programmers really get to know the hardware. Luckily the Playstation development setup is hailed as being among the best in the industry.
Data Engine (MDEC)

Clearing capacity: 80 MIPS
CPU, direct bus connection
Also compatible with JPEG, H.261 files

A very important player. It even helps cutting down load time, since the data can be loaded from the CD in compressed form, then uncompressed on the fly by this baby! Note the support for industry formats, not just proprietary.
Sound

ADPCM, 24 channels
Sampling frequency: 44.1 Khz

CD quality sound! What more could you ask for... Well, since you ask, it would have been nice if it had a little bit better sound support. By all means, it is great for using sound of the CD, but more or less incapable of producing sound on its own. Oh well, you won't notice it!
Graphics

16.7 million colors
Resolution: 256x224 - 740x480
Sprite/BG drawing
Adjustable frame buffer
No line restriction
Unlimited CLUTs (Color Look-Up Tables)
4,000 8x8 pixel sprites with individual scaling and rotation
Simultaneous backgrounds (Parallax scrolling)
360,000 polygons/sec

Why do people question these specs? OK, so the Saturn might be a bit better on 2D, but read the specs again. Parodius has some slowdown, NOT because of lacking hardware, but due to programmers not used to the system. Raiden has less slowdown, i.e. more experienced programmers. So in 6-9 months we should see no more slowdowns in 2D scrolling games. Relax, the hardware CAN handle it!
Memory

Main RAM: 2 Megabytes
VRAM: 1 Megabyte
Sound RAM: 512 K
CD-ROM buffer: 32K
Operating System ROM: 512K
RAM cards for data save: 128K EEprom

Hey, it's more RAM than many other consoles out there! Stuff can be stored in RAM in compressed form, then uncompressed on the fly during gameplay. So don't expect that this will limit its performance. (You just can't compare how much RAM the PSX has vs. a PC. It is a totally different concept!)
CD-ROM

Double speed
XA compliant

Like all tech, all specs are crap around 6 years, that includes your stuff now.

Re: HAHAHA PS1 Specs, it's Crap!

Don't they? damn that's annoying, they censor it here, unfortunately, but i just watch it online on South Park, The Simpsons, Family Guy and American Dad | Watch Online | X Episodes. it's not censored there.

Sadly, this is so true. Not only does your system wear out, but the software that are being released constantly require higher and higher specs to run well. The PC manufacturing business is a goldmine!

Re: HAHAHA PS1 Specs, it's Crap!

**** you man.

The PS1 was awesome all those years ago. I still remember endlessly playing Forsaken at it.

In fact I still have that thing around here somewhere.
