    Toshiba announced today a dedicated 3D graphics LSI that promises unseen levels of realism and excitement to games played on mobile phones.
    The new LSI, "TC35711XBG", is able to render 100 mega-polygons a second a number that is many times over better than the ones we find in handheld consoles.
    Toshiba's new chip integrates a new developed 3D graphics processor that achieves 38 times the performance of existing products. Its advanced capabilities open the way to further development of software applications of mobile phones. The new chip is also compatible with programmable shader, and its rendering capabilities will bring realistic shading and reflectivity to mobile phones for the first time.

    Alongside the new 3D graphics processor, the new LSI also integrates Toshiba's "Media Embedded Processor" (MeP) to handle sound, a host processor, a WVGA LCD controller for wide-screen displays, and brings all the essential components of a game console onto a single chip dedicated to enhancing mobile phone game performance.
    Toshiba stated that it would start mass production of the new LSI in the 2Q of CY2008.

    YAY games that actually look like games on a phone, but a keypad still sucks as your only input.

    plus they keypad doesn't recognize when you press two buttons at once...you can have super graphics, but if you can't run and jump (snes super mario style), I can't see any good gaming on a cell phone...

    I'm sure some of the newer phones may have fixed this, but my blackberry (pearl) doesn't :(

    What the hell does LSI stand for?

    And pretty cool, but Id like a joystick in conjunction with button running on phones.

    Granted, most if not all phone games dont require multiple presses, at least, not the ones that Ive played.
