Notes : Conceived as a joint venture between Sega, Namco and Nintendo to produce a low cost arcade system, with even talk of multiplayer games between people in arcades and home consoles using the GAMEFORCE network.
Origonally thought to be just an arcade/jamma compatible system, this is now know to be around twice as powerfull as the home variant,
The only details being leaked that it has 48 MB of 1T-SRAM in place of the standard "cube's" 24, so to this end I have taken out all of the specs for the system an just replaced it with what we know about it so far.
Developement Notes : Sega's AM4 dept. re-wrote the Naomi development toolkit to be fully compatible with the Triforce, making development for this system very easy, as both Sega and Namco are familiar with it.
Hardware Notes : Sega have made the Naomi GD-ROM drive compatible with the triforce as well, it is unknown if this will be used by Namco and other manufacturers as well.
Versions : The 2 versions are the "A" and "B" versions. The "A" version has a Naomi stype Dimm board on top, where the "B" version has built in internal RAM.
