This teeny-tiny article needs some work. You can help us by expanding it.
The Sega NAOMI 2 is an arcade board developed by Sega and is a successor to Sega NAOMI hardware. It was originally released in 2000, and stands as a beefed up version of the NAOMI specification. It is also fully backwards compatible with its predecessor.
The NAOMI 2 is by and large a more powerful version of the NAOMI, adding a secondary CPU and GPU, as well as increasing the graphics memory. This leads to games with roughly twice as many polygons as a NAOMI game rendered four times faster, though everything else remains largely the same.
As with the NAOMI, the NAOMI 2 was also available in GD-ROM and Satellite Terminal variants.
- CPU: 2 x Hitachi SH-4 32-bit RISC CPU (200 MHz 360 MIPS / 1.4 GFLOPS)
- Graphic Engine: 2 x PowerVR 2 (PVR2DC-CLX2) GPU's - (under the fans)
- Geometry Processor: Custom Videologic T+L chip "Elan" (100MHz) - (Under Heatsink)
- Sound Engine: ARM7 Yamaha AICA 45 MHz (with internal 32-bit RISC CPU, 64 channel ADPCM)
- Main Memory: 32MB 100MHz SDRAM
- Graphic Memory: 32MB
- Model Data Memory: 32MB

- Polygons: 10 million polygons/sec with 6 light sources
- Rendering Speed: 2000 Mpixels/sec (unrealistic max, assumes overdraw of 10x which nothing uses)
- Additional Features: Bump mapping, multiple fog modes, 8-bit alpha blending (256 levels of transparency), mip-mapping (polygon-texture auto switch), tri-linear filtering, super sampling for full scene anti-aliasing, environment mapping, and specular effect.
- Compatibility: Fully backwards compatible with all NAOMI and GD-ROM games.
