Sony To Outsource Production of Cell Processor
Sony has announced they will be cutting production costs on the PS3 Cell processor in much the same way we cut costs here in the States; Outsourcing. Additionally Sony wants to move from 90 and 65 nanometer circuits down to 45. The smaller size reduces the per-chip production costs. Don’t look for this to result in lower priced PS3 units, as it will be late 2008 or beyond before the changes take place.
