    Cell Processor to Shrink, Size and Price of PS3 to Follow?

    Sponsored Links
    A 45 nanometer cell processor was first realized earlier this year, and Sony plans to include it in the PlayStation 3 sometime during 2009.

    Well, how does this affect you? By creating a smaller chip, Sony circumvents some costs associated with creating the Cell, and a cheaper production price equates to more leeway for a potential PS3 price cut.

    Additionally, by reducing the size of the chip from 65nm to 45nm, power consumption decreases by approximately 40%. When less power is consumed, less heat is generated, and a slimmer console -- like the slimline PS2 -- suddenly becomes a possibility.

    We'll continue to provide the big picture on the Cell processor in the future -- no matter how small it gets. More PlayStation 3 News...

    It's down $500 here for a 80gb since I bought it. So in less than a year it's pretty close to half off.

    Smaller chip and less heat, maybe more space to add a 3.5" sata disc instead of the 2.5" one..
