40GB PlayStation 3 goes 65nm
While it lacks a larger capacity hard drive, or any backwards-compatibility with older PS2 games, it appears that Sony have included the new 65nm version of the consoles CPU and GPU in the new 40GB bundle. Alongside that, is also a new motherboard (SEM-001), and a new south bridge (CXD2984GB). The most important change, however, comes thanks to the new 65nm technology used. Apparently, the console?s power usage has dropped from 200W at full load, to 135W. Sony have also reportedly swapped from Elpida, to Samsung memory.
