Spielt gerade: GT&FM | 60fps FTW
Mittlerweile fehlt sogar die HDD LED - obwohl manche Spiele die als Indikator angeben wann man das Spiel nicht abbrechen sollte!


Has the RSX and Cell been reduced in size over the PS3 Super Slim's lifespan? (Pics)

Hey guys, been doing some reading as I'm quite interested in the PS3's hardware (sad I know), and I was interested to come across some findings that suggest that the Super Slim PS3 has gone through several internal changes throughout it's lifespan.

There have been three iterations of the Super Slim, the CECH-4000, 4200, and 4300 (the latest model on the market).

In the 4300, the HDD access indicator light was removed

Something has changed regarding the RSX

This site here (requires translating) seems to suggest that the RSX has been reduced in size from a 40nm process to 28nm

Whilst there are also differences with the Cell too

Anyone know anymore about this? Can someone who owns a 4200 or 4300 Super Slim do a power consumption test to see if there have been any improvements?
There were some Linkedin pages of IBM engineers a couple of years ago that showed work had been done in migrated Cell BE to 22nm.


I created the thread for that :P
