Sony's CELL Processor, which is used in the Playstation 3, is getting an update according to the source, shrinking it down to a 65nm chip, operating at 6GHz at 1.3v. The new update would allow for better performance, and a cooler running system, though producing a "better" Playstation 3 could upset some current owners, and cause a bit of confusion.
"The 65nm CELL Broadband Engine design features a dual power supply, which enhances SRAM stability and performance using an elevated array-specific power supply, while reducing the logic power consumption. Hardware measurements demonstrate low-voltage operation and reduced scatter of the minimum operating voltage." (Spong.com, 2007)
