I don't give a heck about tech specs anyway, it's the game that counts, and IMO, the PCE had a much more interesting library among them all.
The PC Engine was delivering about 1.5 MIPS which was impressive for the CPUs it was using. All this 8bit-16bit shit was the advertising campaign used by Sega in the States and it worked just fine. But I agree with Akira, the PCE was the console for hardcore gamers.
