Yes, the PSPgo is not even out yet, and a new rumor has flown out that the PSP 2 is currently in development stages. However, this rumor involves the existence of a well-known GPU manufacturer adding their scalable graphics technology to Sony’s next handheld.

Eurogamer Spanish has claimed that they have possession of the specs for the PSP 2. The handheld will apparently feature a newer version of Imagination Technology’s PowerVR SGX543MP. This would give the PSP 2 the same level of graphics we saw in the original Xbox.

It’s been claimed that PowerVR SGX543MP can run Open GL 2.0 and DirectX 10, which is technically above what even the Xbox 360 can do, as it runs Directx 9.0c. For more information on the PowerVR GPU, you can check out this link.
