PlayStation 3 40GB outfitted with 65nm process technology

Apparently, lower hard drive capacity, reduced price, and a lack of PlayStation 2 backwards compatibility aren’t the only changes users can expect in the upcoming 40GB version of Sony’s PlayStation 3 console. According to a report by German site Computer Base, the new console that’s scheduled to hit U.S. stores early next month is also outfitted with fresh chips based on 65nm process technology.

Computer Base says both the PS3’s Cell microprocessor and its RSX graphics processor have enjoyed a die shrink from 90nm to 65nm. To accommodate the new processors, the console has reportedly been upgraded with a new motherboard (revision name SEM-001), a new south bridge (dubbed CXD2984GB ), and a smaller heat pipe. Sony has also made some other changes, such as swapping Samsung memory chips for Elpida ones and adding a battery on the motherboard.
