PSP2 will have Xbox-level graphics

And will sport a similar graphics chip to the iPhone 3GS

Reports have emerged that some of the core technology for the hitherto denied PSP2 has been settled upon. Eurogamer Spain claims to have information from an inside source on the device’s graphical architecture.

According to the site, the next generation of PlayStation Portable will feature a PowerVR SGX543MP chip, codenamed "Hydra." Nope, means nothing to me either. Interestingly though, the chip is very similar to the GPU currently to be found powering the iPhone 3GS.

The key difference, says the unnamed source, is that the PSP2 version will be a quad-core affair, pushing the unit into original Xbox territory. In fact, with the chip capable of some fancy new effects, it’s likely that the PSP2 will push slightly beyond what the Microsoft console is capable of.

If matching the graphical capabilities of an eight-year-old console doesn’t sound too impressive to you, perhaps consider that the relatively new Nintendo Wii has - according to some - failed at this very task.
