    Has Sony forgotten to mention something special about firmware 3.00? A discussion has been brewing in our PSP forums here at QJ, and although we wouldn't usually post assumptions, this discussion has pretty good reason to suggest that some games are running at a speed higher than 222Mhz on the new firmware 3.00. It all started with a forum user called Colombian Cartel (thanks for the tip!) who claimed that Metal Gear Acid and Metal Gear Acid 2 have been running a lot quicker since he upgraded to firmware 3.0, with the blinking effect on the game menu going much quicker than when he was on a lower firmware.

    Of course, this is an isolated report from one user; until psp093 came a long testing his 1.50 firmware PSP playing Metal Gear Acid with a 3.00 PSP doing the same. His results backed up Colombian Cartel - that 3.0 did actually seem to run the game faster with the PSPs running side-by-side.

    There are three explanations to this, and one of them is that both Colombian Cartel and psp093 are hallucinating. The other explanations are that either firmware 3.0 utilizes the processor speed of 222Mhz better and can run games faster, or that firmware 3.0 is clocking the processor to a speed above 222, for example 266Mhz.

    Idle speculation? Or a new feature in 3.0 Sony neglected to mention? Join the discussion.

    Doesn't matter to me :/
    I can just turn up the clock speed anytime I want on SE so I don't care.

    but, 3.0 might get a little boost, but 1.5ers+se users got a whole rnage of speeds to choose from.
