Leading chipmaker Intel claims its processing technology could see Nintendo able to completely remove physical controllers from future game consoles. Source So will Nintendo favour Intel now instead of IBM? If Intel is able to deliver performance equating to 1 trillion calculations per second in the next wave of gaming hardware, it will certainly eclipse current standards, which see the PlayStation Cell pushing around 256 billion calculations per second. So if Nintendo favours Intel then the next Wii console will certainly be better than the Sony PS3. Wasnt it Sony's plan to make PS4 a sort of upgrade on the PS3? Sony could be in trouble then if tats the case.
