    • As far as the number of capacitors, capacitance values, and layout, there are three versions of the Game Gear.

    • To determine what version you have, look on the right side of the board. You will either have one or two of this ASIC chips.

    • If your Game Gear has two ASIC chips there is only one variation, which has 11 capacitors. If your Game Gear has one ASIC, there are two possible variations.

    • If you have the one ASIC type, you'll need to look on the left edge of the main board for the VA number. There are two options, VA1 and VA4.
