    Cell shrunk to 22nm

    http://www.linkedin.com/pub/elizabet...ard/45/718/7b7

    http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=535647

    Found a post that probably explains what it means
    22nm Cell with stacked XDR and 28nm RSX with stacked GDDR3 on a single package. That's where it's heading. Sony have been researching stacked RAM quite a lot and they used it for PSVita, the natural extension is that they will also use it for PS3, 2Gb XDR and 2Gb GDDR3 chips aren't going to be particularly expensive.

    What's more is that getting Cell down to 22nm would require the removal of Flex IO to fully realise the cost savings, that means stacked XDR for the same or more bandwidth between Cell/XDR is the only real solution.

    What this also does is pave the way for an eventual single chip solution with all PS3 functions on board that could be fabricated at TSMC for less than $50, allowing for an eventual ultra cheap PS3 in 2015/16 for a developing markets push.

    it would have been cool if it was shunk to fit it into the PS4

    however, Brazil and China are two very large markets. a cheaper chip should mean cheaper console. even more-so if they're going for an APU type setup.
    promising prospects for Sony and ps3 it would seem.

    Yep. I wonder if they will downsize the console again. Doubtful but it would be cool if they come up with an even smaller SKU.

    Never gonna happen but it would be so amazing if they released an even smaller PS3 with hardware BC and 4 USB ports for just $99. Ultimate PS3.

    If they ever did put BC back in the prices of the 60GB on ebay would plummet lol

    Oh damn, that's good news. If they can release yet another slimmed down version that'd be ace. Something similar looking to the PS2 slim please

    Yup, the PS3 is going to be a force for at least the next 5 years.

    Wouldnt surprise me if that was the case. Particularly if they could sell the thing for like $99 or something. Would make for a great cheap digital streaming box that plays games

    PS2 went for what...12 years? I bet some places still sell it. I can only imagine how long the PS3 can go as it's supported well.

    You'd imagine the next few years of CoDs and Fifas/Maddens will still be released on PS3 due to it's install base. With free online, PS+, a competent bluray player and good on demand video services - it should do really well in most regions if it's cheap/affordable

    Awesome what they can do with technology these days maybe they will put this in the ps4 if it's small enough and cheap enough...
