A job posting from NVIDIA sparks rumours that the graphics firm is developing is working on new chips for Sony's upcoming PlayStation Portable 2:
The site says this posting is further evidence that Nvidia is working on hardware for Sony's next-generation PlayStation Portable handheld console. eDRAM is used in both Sony's PSP and PlayStation 2, Beyond3D says, but Nvidia has never shipped a product with eDRAM before.

Last year, Sony and Nvidia signed a design contract that made mention of "a range of chip products" and "different programs and products" within Sony, which led to talk of a possible Nvidia-powered PSP2. According to previous rumors, the PSP2 may appear within the next couple of years.
