Tech-On’s Cell Interview Continues
Tech-On! has released more of their interview with Sony’s Ken Kutaragi.
When asked about setting the operating frequency at 4GHz:
This is just as initially targeted. The reason for setting this target was quite simple. I extrapolated the operating frequency for 2005 from logarithmic graphs, and it turned out be 4GHz.
And when asked if he has a prospect of launching a Cell-mounted game console in the near future, he says:
We wouldn’t have submitted the paper to the academic society unless we had had some degree of prospect for commercialization. It would have been disrespectful to the society. Let me put it this way. It is because we have a substantial level of confidence, I’m here for this interview.
