PS3 graphics chip going 65nm this Fall
In addition to talking movie downloads, Sony Computer Entertainment CEO Kaz Hirai confirmed at a business briefing yesterday (via Next-Gen) that the PlayStation 3 consoles produced after last holiday season all have the 65nm Cell processor (down from 90nm at launch). In addition, Sony will be slimming down the RSX graphics chips to 65nm this Fall.

The GPU shrinkage will make the PS3s cheaper to produce, use less energy and not heat up as much. That doesn't necessarily mean a price drop is imminent, but it does give the company some more breathing room to make up that $3.32 billion.
