Cell on a diet again, Cell 3 details revealed.

Details of the Cell's 45nm shrink have now appeared. The new version of the chip has dropped in power consumption by 40%.

This will cut costs as it uses less silicon then the 65nm version and the lower power consumption means a simpler, lower cost cooling system.

Production is due to start in the summer so expect them on the shelves in time for Christmas. This will probably lead to a PS3 price cut again just before Christmas.

:O just how fast are sony getting production costs down?

When these are placed it, they will be making a large profit per unit. Which basically means, expect a price cut ready for the hoilday season later this year

cmrbe3906d ago

one of those people that thought that Sony will dropped the price of the PS3 either when GTA4 or MGS4 comes out but it looks unlikely now and most likely the end of the year as you said. The closer the x360 gets to mass market pricing the harder it will be for Sony. I think it will be a big mistake if they don't match the x360 price drops when it happens soon but then again. I know Sony know what they are doing but for their sake i hope they are not wrong with how they were wrong with the initial PS3 price point.

gonzopia3906d ago

I think the PS3 is on the right track to compete with the 360. MS's decision to not include a standard HDD and standard Blu-ray or HD-DVD optical drive will continue to hurt them as games get larger and more complex... not to mention the hardware failure rate.

...anything the PS3 does now to add value (in-game XMB, Home, improved PS Store, PlayTV, and of course - more games) will only sweeten the pot for prospective buyers. Now add a possible price cut to the list.

Sony and the PS3 are positioned well.

cmrbe3906d ago

The PS3 is still positioned better but i have this really bad feeling that Sony should really be careful with how they react to the looming x360 price drops. We know already that the x360 is a serious competitor this gen and Sony shouldn't underestimate them. Sony could potentially put them away this year if they match the x360 price drop which i am hoping they will.

robbo9183906d ago

Sony will drop prices if MS does, or at least that's my opinion. Sony isn't losing money on the consoles so they have room to cut. Seeing as they have been gaining ground lately they won't want that to change, but who knows until it all happens.
