    Is there any pain-free way to check if a PS3 is using the 90nm or 65nm Cell? Without taking a power meter to it or taking it apart. I have an 80gB one bought last December and I'm curious to know.

    I dont think Sony has implemented the 65nm Cells yet.

    Im also curious, why do you want to know?

    They have already stated that they are putting 65nm Cells in PS3s now. [​IMG]

    You have the 90nm. Only the 40GB is currently packaged with the 65nm Cell. I know. My 40GB runs noticeably cooler than my 80GB.

    Exactly. I got a 2nd one to play GH3 with the Family, and watch BD Movies. Technically the 40GB is my Family's and the 80GB is mine. I consider both ''mine'' though. Besides me and my father have been on a Blu-ray shopping spree. 3 BD Movies in 1 week. @ this rate I'll be broke soon.
