Ps3 SDK Logicboard ?
Was talking to a friend today bout the ps3 and he came up with this. its just a idea so here it goes.
Take apart the SDK model, take high resolution photos of the Logicboard. Work out what all the IC,s are.. Its possible that sony has put a extra IC on the SDK models, that retail consoles dont have. which the firmware that the SDK models run checks for. It may be simple to solder a chips to the retail console.
Hope i can get some light on this..

Well - we have. I suggest reading the News: http://www.ps4news.com/ps3-hacks-jailbreak/
Furthermore, inserting another chip will not help too much, there are still signatures on the firmware, etc - so that will be a bit difficult to accomplish.

No problem - of note however:
Between a TEST PS3, and a Retail PS3, there are no hardware differences, its all in the software.
A TOOL however - it's a different beast, HW is quite different, but similar on the same note!

Interesting, now is the hardware/software from for example old dev kits, and new dev kits different, also.

Well, did not mean that. A quick rundown:
CECHA-P (the fat models) are equivalent to the DECHA/DECHJ models (60/40gb)
Then, there are the CECH-2000 (slim) models, which have their own DECH equivalent.
Those are Debug units.
Then, there are TOOL units, the DECR-1000 and the DECR-1400. the DECR-1000 is the giant PS3 TOOL, while the DECR-1400 is basically a DECHA model, with a new CPU, and additional ram - quite undesirable actually!
