Game Boy Advance Architecture

Game Boy Advance Architecture

The internal design of the Game Boy Advance is quite impressive for a portable console that runs on two AA batteries.

This console will carry on using Nintendo’s signature GPU. Additionally, it will introduce a relatively new CPU from a UK company that will surge in popularity in the years to come.

Note that both CPUs will never run at the same time or do any fancy co-processing. The only reason for including the very old Sharp is for backwards compatibility.

The Game Boy architecture is really interesting to me. This article has more detailed information for the Game Boy Advance.
