Same as in PSX. Except, one board is said to be having the CPU clocked at 48MHz, instead of 33MHz???

Same as in PSX. Except, most or all boards are said to have 2MB VRAM instead of 1MB. Unknown how the extra VRAM is accessed... maybe as Y=512..1023... (though the PSX VRAM transfer commands are limited to 9bit Ysiz values, but maybe Y coordinates can be 10bit wide).

Arcade games are stored on ROM (or FLASH) instead of using CDROM drives.

Most PSX-based arcade boards are having the PSX-SPU replaced by a different sound chip (with each arcade manufacturer using their own custom sound chip, often controlled by a separate sound CPU).

Arcade boards are typically having digital joysticks instead of joypads, with differently named buttons (instead of /\,[],(),><), probably accessed via custom I/O ports (instead of serial transmission)? Plus additional coin inputs and DIP switches.

Note: There's no documentation for those arcade boards yet, however, it might be possible to extract that info from MAME source code.

I am homeless in Hamburg, please help me out!
