Would anyone know what kind of CPU radar detectors have? And would the speed of the processor have an effect on the reaction time? My theory has always been that if an RD was equipped with something like a 600mhz-1gz CPU it would have a blistering fast reaction time & would be able to sweep Ka band very quickly. If they don't have CPU's with that much juice I was thinking, what's holding back manufactures from creating an RD that would boast a Smartphone like CPU. Forgive me and please correct me if I am assuming the wrong thing here. I would love to find out how these devices really work and if anyone knows anything about this topic, please share.
(Also I do realize dash mounted units are subjected to a lot of heat, so cooling a powerful CPU could be problematic, but perhaps cooling fins or a heat sink, maybe with a small fan, could cool the unit down.)
