So a few months ago Sony filed for certification for a new PS3 model CECH-42xx in Japan and South Korea according to kotaku. It was speculated that the new model will use a 22nm Cell and/or a 22nm RSX and be released next year (according to a tweet of digital foundry). It seems this isn't the case because apparently the new CECH-42XX model has already been released at least in Europe as you can download manuals for CECH-42xx models directly from Sony. http://uk.playstation.com/ps3/support/manuals/ I compared the specs between the CECH-40XX and CECH-42XX models and apparently nothing has changed regarding the Cell and RSX as there is no difference between the power consumption of both models. Anyone picked up a CECH-42XX?
