AnandTech has posted an article on the hardware that is likely to be in the new iPhone 3GS. Of course, someone will do a full tear-down of the device as soon as it is available, but the sources seem pretty good on this one. The general vibe is that the iPhone is going from 486/Nvidia TNT type hardware of the mid-late 90’s to a CPU built like a super-fast Pentium, and a GPU with an architecture very similar to modern DX8/DX9 GPUs. The results should be impressive.
