The E3 Sony conference is right now. 3pm PST

wether the following info is true or not, I do not know yet.
but Blu-Ray!

原文如下:

1/ 1 CELL running at 4 GHZ, providing 256 GFLOPS power ( 1 PPE ( L1 cache 32 KB, L2 cache 512 KB, and 8 SPE each one having 256 KB )

2/ there is 2 I/O ( input/output ) on CELL, to communicate with other parts of the console, the first I/O of the CELL has the main purpose to communicate with the unified shared (between the CELL and the GPU) XDR Ram memory ( from RAMBUS) at a 50 GB/s bandwidth ( 4 * 64 MB = 256 MB of memory )

3/ The second I/O is called FlexIO ( flexible input/output ) and this allow the CELL to communicate with the next generation NVIDIA GPU at a 76.8 GB/s bandwidth ( this GPU with 190 million transistors will run at a 600 MHZ, with a 32 rendering pipelines, associated with 16 MB of Toshiba Embedded DRAM of 256 GB/s bandwidth) The CELL will help the GPU in creating advanced physics for particle effects.

4/ retro compatibility with PS1 ( emulated by the CELL ) and PS2 ( emulated by the CELL )

5/ a Hard Disk of 160 GO, Ethernet port ( no modem this time ), wireless, U**2 port, and a flash stick memory duo-pro support.

6/ the controllers will not so much differ from those of PS2, with the main difference that they will be WIRELESS, and with better analog buttons and more varied vibration effects.

7/ If the first CELL IBM produced prototypes are using 90 nanometer technology, the first SDKs containing the CELL that developers will receive after 2 months will be produced with this technology, but the CELLs that will be used on PS3 ( and later SDKs ) will be produced with the 65 nanometer technology, allowing sony to decrease the costs of PS3, and to tackle the problems of HEAT.

8/ The PS3 will ship on MARS 2006 in JAPAN ( earlier than what a lot of people thought before ) there will be 2 versions of PS3, but only the first version will be shipped on mars 2006, ( at a price range of 299-399 $ ) with a read only blue-ray, and as mentioned a 120 GO hard disk capacity. The second version of PS3 will ship some months later, ( 399-599$ ) with a writer blue/ray, a 400 GO hard disk, for the main purpose of recording TV digital programs.

Date of releasing the PS3 on USA and Europe hasnít been determined yet by sont but its believed that the PS3 will ship between July and October 2006 in USA and in late 2006 in Europe

IGN says it'll support 1080p... that's awesome.  Are there any TV's out yet that support 1080p?

Most HDTV's out there are 1080i.  The p is for progressive, the i for interlaced.  Interlaced means it only draws half of the lines every trip down, but it does it so fast that your eye doesn't really detect it.

By contrast, current tv is 480i

yeah.  its the 'i' one.  of course, i have yet to get it to work for anything, other than the x-box, and not often then.  if i recall correctly, it does the 700ish in both 'p' and 'i'.  Actually, now that I think of it, I think the DVD is in HD too.  Where the DVDs are anyway.  Regular TV is sort of fuzzy on the screen, but DVDs are clear.  VHS is likewise, sort of blurry.  I guess thats what you get for having a 60" TV.  But on the up side, when I play the Legend of Zelda: Windwaker, I feel like i'm actually sailing!!

$399 is the word on the streets and a cost of $494 to manufacture.

Also there's a rumor of a DC comics based MMORPG for PS3, PC, and PSP... the idea of taking a MMORPG with you is enticing. †I wonder if any consideration has been given to FFXI for the PSP... Although I think the relatively small screen resolution would make for some odd MMORPG with all of the text.

Shocked Shocked Shocked

Sony is expected to offer optional hard drives for the PS3 with potential memory capacity of 80 or 120 GB. It remains to be decided whether the standard version of the PS3 will come complete with a hard drive. The operating system has also yet to be clarified. The integrated Cell processor will be able to support a variety of operating systems (such as Linux or Apple's Tiger).

So what's their scheme to make money if they're losing it on the production of the console? Game licensing? XBox is doing the same thing.

Wow, I hate all of the readers who posted replies to that article that khim just posted. A lot of them know less than I do about computers, but look at 'em rush out to share their expertise. Zero stars, indeed.
