New CECH-2101 PS3 Slims with 40nm RSX chips spotted


It seems the new CECH-2101 PS3 Slim models are finally out in the wild.

A poster on the CheapAssGamers forum reports that he found one at his local Fry’s while another spotted a unit at Target. The new PS3s have also reportedly made it to Canada as one poster says he got his at a Futureshop in Toronto.

The new CECH-2101 PS3 model comes with a 40nm RSX chip. That means it uses up less power, is less likely to overheat, and is not as susceptible to YLOD issues as older models.

    Great for newer buyers and this would explain why there was a small shortage of the PS3 the last two months.
