We need to finish this list. There's still some boards missing. Red Phoenix (Talk) 20:12, 27 March 2008 (UTC)

Yeah...I see that Sega's Aurora board isn't on the list, and that one is relatively the same age as Lindberg. Also...would Sammy's Atomiswave count? I mean, Sega did merge with Sammy, the board was released after the merger, and it is based on Dreamcast hardware (which itself was based on NAOMI hardware).

Additionally, each board should have a list of games that used it. Kouban (talk) 03:05, 8 November 2008 (UTC)

Europa-R CPU[edit]

Well, we all know there is no Pentium Dual-Core with 3.4 GHz, so does anyone have reliable information what CPU it really is? I guess it would be either a Pentium D (although that would be a dumb choice) or a Core 2 Duo. -- Darklock (talk) 11:38, 28 July 2008 (UTC)

  • I'd suggest it was Pentium D 945, which was going very cheap around its EOL (under $100, which was considerably cheaper than Core Duo); besides, Pentiums D were popularily referred to as "dual-core Pentium" long before Intel intoduced that nameplate, and that's probably the source of confusion. I've changed the specifications. -- (talk) 19:00, 29 September 2009 (UTC)


I was just reading the Namco system board page and noticed it had some categories so I've added something similar here. I hope I did it right?WorkingBeaver (talk) 10:55, 26 August 2008 (UTC)

Sega Model 2 section[edit]

It says:

This, combined with the fact that some games were available for both 2A-CRX and 2B-CRX, led to the reverse engineering of the Model 2 and Model 2A-CRX DSPs.

Is there a source for this claim? WorkingBeaver (talk) 12:38, 13 September 2008 (UTC)


Apologies if I missed conseus, but why is Triforce redirected here? It's processor is based on the GameCube, a Nintendo system, with some based on Sega, but why here? Only some of the games for it are even from Sega. Magiciandude (talk) 07:25, 3 January 2009 (UTC)

Agreed, it should be placed in the Nintendo GameCube article. - The New Age Retro Hippie used Ruler! Now, he can figure out the length of things easily. 00:03, 7 February 2009 (UTC)

Model 3 = last Sega custom board?[edit]

Can the Model 3 is also last Sega board to use custom design rather than a PC/console derivative?Junk Police (talk) 13:13, 28 January 2009 (UTC)

Ring Edge / Ring Wide[edit]

Here [1] are the specs of Sega's new boards. If you can read Japanese, please translate the information and add it to the article. -- Stormwatch (talk) 12:20, 22 February 2009 (UTC)

Sega System 8?[edit]

Doing my research on what the name of the arcade board Wonder Boy in Monster Land ran on, I keep seeing "Sega System 8" on sites like KLOV and Classics Arcade Database. I'm guessing this board has a relation to the System 2 board (which I see Wonder Boy in Monster Land and similar games also listed under such as here, here, and even here) or if this is a matter of different nomenclature for the same board. Obviously, the specs are nearly identical to that of the System 1 and 2 boards. Can anyone clarify on this? –MuZemike 20:29, 17 August 2010 (UTC)

NEC V60 is not a RISC[edit]

Wikipedia`s own page on the V60 identifies it as a CISC. Looking at the V60 user`s manual I think it is pretty clear that it is not RISC. (talk) 22:34, 15 January 2011 (UTC)

Suicide Battery?[edit]

The system 18 entry mentions a suicide battery and refers readers to system 16. Neither entry explains what the suicide battery is. (talk) 02:43, 17 November 2011 (UTC)

Jaybee77 (talk) 22:51, 30 November 2011 (UTC) Lindbergh last game Jaybee77 (talk) 22:51, 30 November 2011 (UTC) Text in article: The last game to run on Lindbergh was MJ4 Evolution.[31] The last game on Lindbergh was Answer X Answer Live on Lindbergh Red in 2010 [Reference: Reference]

To clarify, "suicide battery" generally refers to an arrangement by which encryption keys or other vital data are stored in SRAM powered by a battery. When the battery dies, the PCB is rendered permanently inoperable, in the sense that there is no way to reprogram the RAM from within the PCB itself — hence the term "suicide."
Actually clarifying the technical details in the article remains TODO. SoledadKabocha (talk) 05:09, 29 September 2012 (UTC)

System 24 CD-ROMs?[edit]

I think the alleged CD-ROM capability of System 24 may be a myth. At least, none of the System 24 games known to the MAME project use CD storage. Does anyone know of evidence that there were System 24 PCBs officially released with CD-ROMs? SoledadKabocha (talk) 05:09, 29 September 2012 (UTC)

This appears to have been resolved by this edit, which removed the mention of CDs. --SoledadKabocha (talk) 17:47, 24 September 2013 (UTC)

Chihiro Upgradeable RAM[edit]

The RAM has been proven to be 128MB, twice that of the Xbox but in no way upgradeable. All the upgrade options simply refer to the GD-ROM DIMM Board which can go up to 1GB on the Chihiro. -- (talk) 18:26, 20 January 2013 (UTC)


This article uses many references to source code at git hub. The references are unclear, since the reader is obliged to read and understand the code in order to verify the references. Several of the links are broken, anyway. I believe these links are not viable references, and if there are no objections, I'll be removing them and marking them with {{fact}} tags.

There are also several references to a document that's on a third-party website, but published by Sega and very clearly marked "confidential". This is also not an appropriate reference and should be removed. -- Mikeblas (talk) 18:07, 11 October 2015 (UTC)

I've removed the links to source code in emulators used as references for this article. -- Mikeblas (talk) 18:50, 14 November 2015 (UTC)
The MAME project renamed most of its .c files to .cpp. Could that have caused some of the broken links? I know they probably aren't appropriate as references anyway though. --SoledadKabocha (talk) 20:09, 24 December 2015 (UTC)

November 2016???????[edit]
