    I might be a bit behind the times (holidays) but the Nintendo GameCube uses a PowerPC chip clocked at 485MHz, named Gekko, with its own custom graphics chip - Flipper.

    Machine:
    80MB RAM
    8cm 1.5GB capacity optical disc
    Built 4 controller ports
    Digital & Analog A/V output
    2 memory card slots

    Accessories:
    New style controller
    Memory Card
    Gameboy Advance to Gamecube cable
    Modem (56k V.90)
    Broadband Adapter
    Digital A/V cable
    RF Switch

    This thing is nice to play on. The controller is so well designed. graphics below the sony 2 but still render very nicely. small and compact. all round fun!

    the good this is that nintendo wont lose any money over this.
    since when do people use 8cm DVDs? They aint going to get anything stolen.

    that was a good this about cartridges! nobody paid for stolen software.
