Should Consumers Care about 65nm? The Light Bulb Analogy

This article explains in very simple terms and makes an excellent analogy to how much power your PS3, X360, and Wii are using in terms of both Watts and numbers of Light bulb. Worth a read for people who are wondering the difference between 90nm vs 65nm since there are so much talk of such revisions in the PS3 recently.

Myself I have a Pelican cooler on my ps3 it says if it ever causes the system to over heat they will replace it i figaured atleast i have an excuse now lol... Personally i am glad i got my ps3 at launch (60gig) Version which is now 160gigs :P due to a Harddrive upgrade. Its more friendly to your parnets ele. bills :P but me personally i am keeping my orginal ps3 its my little Jesus :P But i guess its good for those people that do not have a lot of space so it wont cause that much heat for them but for me its fine.

Doesn't matter for PS3 owners really, since the new 40GB is already a lot more efficient. The only ones that would care are Sony, who can now reduce the cost of each PS3 so they don't have to take as much of a loss. So I hope IBM can finish with the 45nm soon.

Every Lightbulb in my house is a energy efficient hologen I've not had to replace a lightbulb in the past 3 years.
