Yeah, the 3G has an ARM11 412MHz processor and 128MB RAM. Where as the 3GS has an ARM Cortex A8 600MHz CPU with 256MB RAM. So quite a difference. Not to mention, I've heard the A8 CPU is actually an 800MHz CPU that's been underclocked due to heat. Not sure if that's true or not.

My System Specs


Saw this over at Hardocp, I barely gove a crap about it, but figured I would forward it to the iPhone folks messing around with the new OS:
Reports: iOS 4 upgrade kills old iPhones’ Wi-Fi - Yahoo! News

Numerous threads have cropped up on Apple’s support forums in the last few weeks outlining the problem: After the OS upgrade, the iPhone will no longer pick up the presence of Wi-Fi networks at all. Reverting to the old iPhone operating system does not resolve the problem, nor does resetting the phone to factory-original status. Forum posters posit that the upgrade in some way has “fried” the Wi-Fi chip in the phone, leaving it unfixable via software.
Obviously this does not happen to everyone, but something to be aware of i think.
