Samsung to manufacture PS Vita CPU

Friday, 29th July 2011 06:11 GMT By Brenna Hillier

According to Andriasang’s translation of a Semiconductor Industry News report, Samsung will supply the PS Vita’s CPU.

The site also reiterates earlier reports that the chip will be produced using a 45 nanometer process, as are those used in the slim models of both the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

The two electronics companies have a strong working relationship, with a joint LCD manufacturing facility in Korea among other collaborations.

Sony is yet to set a release date for the new handheld, although it’s expected to reach Japan before the end of the year, with international launch to follow.

    But what about GPU ? If it is going to have samsung quad core cpu (forth core is reserved for OS) then GPU should be much better.

    @4 The 4th core won’t be just dedicated for OS, if programed correctly an OS shouldn’t use more than 10% of the CPU core.

    @2 technically good thing. Samsung is one of the best mobile CPU manufacture and they do that cheaply.

    SAMSUNG is the best TV and Smartphone CPU manufacturer along with HTC.

    Sony should be grateful to Samsung that they are going to do this job. IT’s a quality over quantity.
