Hi Eduardo, when you say "enhanced graphics mode" does this mean that the SGM 2 will give the CV to display more on screen colors? will the SGM 2 work in tandem with the CV hardware? or will the CV just be a pass thru?
First of all, I really like your nickname.
Yes, the SGM2 gives the CV new graphic capabilities. 2 scroll planes, sprites as big as 64x64 pixels, thousands of tiles and sprites to select from, 256 colors (from a 32,000 color palette) on screen and more.
The SGM2 gives the CV a new backward compatible 16-bit CPU (24 bit linear address and all), while the CV CPU still works as the sound and I/O CPU for the system. It is a fast system, about 6MIPS, 10 times faster than a regular CV. Very game oriented.
Because the CPU is backward compatible, games created for the CV can be easily upgraded to use the SGM2. There are some graphic features of the SGM2 that we aren’t discussing yet that I am sure CV fans will love to see in action.
And I didn’t even touch the sound capabilities here.
