PS3 Slim Now Slimmer (On The Inside)

posted in: Game News | 0

Stealth updates to hardware is not uncommon. This latest hardware revision for Sony’s PlayStation 3 introduces a smaller 40nm RSX (graphics) chip.

The result?

The PlayStation 3 sips a bit less power (about 15% less), produces a bit less heat and Sony inches closer and closer to profitability thanks to the reduction in materials used.

You can identify these new revisions by their new model number:

  • CECH-2000A – PS3 with 65nm RSX
  • CECH-2100A – New PS3 with 40nm RSX

I’d put the effort into seeking out one of these newer revisions, if I were buying a PS3 nowadays.
