Graphics technology and EE available on one chip
Sony Computer Entertainment announced today that the Playstation 2 Emotion Engine and Graphics Synthesizer can be included on a single chip. The process will utilize a 0.13-micron and should premier first in Japan. This information was obtained through president Ken Kutaragi of SCE from a recent interview with Japanese publication Nikkei Microdevice.
"We are able to shrink the process about three times a year," Kutaragi said at a manufacturing plant in Nagasaki.
No details have been given regarding the schedule of when this process may take place or any price information. Hopefully updated remarks will be made on behalf of SCE, and PSX Extreme can deliver this news to you.
