Sony's PS3 Slim Carries Updated Cell Chip, 45nm Cell Processor 500°
August 20, 2009 // 3:23 pm - IBM have revealed that the new PS3 Slim carries a revised version of the Cell processor.

June 30, 2009 // 6:21 am - PlayStation 2's use the emotion engine as a processor, which was removed from PS3s to save money.

The next chip is called Moorestown, and it's due out early next year. While this chip is likely to be used mainly in products such as netbooks, Chandrasekher said it would also allow for a broader use in "mobile internet devices." That...

February 9, 2009 // 7:28 am - Following up on the article from a few days ago: Sony will use Intel's Larrabee graphics chip in its upcoming PlayStation 4.
