According to reports Sony and Toshiba are planning  to mass produce  45 nm cell processors by 2009 as opposed to the 65 nm processors they’re currently using. The smaller chips are said to require 40% less power to run and can mean that my dream of ps3 price cuts can actually come true, too bad Christmas season would be over by then.

Also, in even bigger or should i say smaller news IBM announced that they’re planning to develop sub-32nm processors 22 nm to be exact which is absolutely unheard of! Previously thought of as an impossible feat, IBM said that it was actually possible to produce chips of such size thanks to a new technique that they’ve developed with Mentor Graphics and Toppan Printing called Computational Scaling.
