About this product Product Information Get back to the origins of console gaming with the Sega Genesis 2 Black Console. Its sleek design and no-nonsense style make this model a good addition to any collection. This console offers you all of the technology Sega is known for in a small package, so it won't take up space in your entertainment setup. A Motorola 68000 CPU runs at a rate of 7.67 MHz. It handles both 8-bit and 16-bit programs with ease. This Genesis version, also known as the Sega Mega Drive 2, features a 16-bit graphics processor. That means graphics load quicker than on its 8-bit counterparts. With 64KB of available RAM, the system can access and process information at a faster rate. Sega has made ports a priority on this model. Two controller ports make it easy to attach your joysticks or standard gaming controllers. These controllers feature a directional pad and selected buttons. A traditional power adapter port accommodates the included power plug. The audio/video port provides a hookup for the special Sega adapter. It can be used with TVs that have audio/video (a/v) connectors.
