Sony shipping updated PS3 consoles with 45nm RSX

Posted on Monday, April 26 2010 @ 21:27:25 CEST by


Sony has updated its PlayStation 3 design, one which is cheaper to manufacture and may enable the company to start selling the consoles at a profit. The new models feature several improvements, such as a 45nm RSX chip which uses 15 percent less power, two 128MB XDR memory sticks rather than four 64MB chips, a new cooling assembly, and a lighter power supply.
The new RSX chip has changed to a 45nm version which uses 15 percent less power and is less prone to overheating, hopefully minimising on cases of the 'yellow light of death'. The Cell chip however remains unchanged.

RAM-wise, the new PlayStation 3 consoles will use two 128MB XDR RAM sticks, rather than the four 64MB chips used in older consoles. There's a new cooling assembly too, plus the power supply is a lot lighter.

Interestingly, the new console may enable Sony to start selling individual consoles at a profit given that the original PS3 Slim design was thought to be breaking even for Sony, says GI.biz.
