    It'd be great if we had an updated progress slide on die shrinks.

    You've seen that slide I like to post now and then of the PS2 chips up through the 90nm EE+GS unification, yeah Alstrong? Although I agree it'd be nice to have the modern additions to that progression.

    Incidentally, who compiled that timeline and why aren't there similar timelines for other systems?

    yup, plenty of times :D I'm just curious as to what they're doing with the chips now, if they've optimized them even further or if they're only optimizing the motherboard components and power supply parts (which would be kind of neat to see too in terms of progress). The continued weight reductions is pretty sweet.

    Never had a chance to touch a PS2 in my life, I might get this one to run old classics!

    I'm not sure who originally compiled it, but I myself found it on the EETimes website a couple of years ago. I agree, it'd be awesome to have a running record compiled across all systems.

    Because the PS2 is the only one that underwent any significant silicon refactoring..

    Yea the impressive part is that the new PS2 is almost half the weight of original Slim (1250g vs 720g), and there were two weight reductions this year. At this rate PS2 will catch up to PSP in a few years :razz:

    To bad size is limited by the usage of DVD, maybe they should let you put your software on USB sticks. :)

    I understand the problems with XB, but didn't Nintendo pursue cost reductions?
