Sony PS3 downgraded again

The Inquirer reports the graphics processor of the PlayStation 3, the RSX chip, has been downgraded from 550MHz core 700MHz meemory to 500MHz core and 650MHz memory.
We can't tell you why the GPU lost nearly 10% of it's clock, it could be an NVidia screwup, or it could be Sony/Cell. Either way, it just became much less of an overwhelming value, but you get a DRM infected drive for 'free' either way.
