    IBM email (wii processor, etc)

    hey guys my dad forwarded me this email he got at work, he works at the IBM plant up in burlington vt where they make the computer chips, thought I would share because it is pretty cool...

    Subject
    Celebrate our Game System Milestone

    John W. DiToro
    Vice President, Burlington S/C Manufacturing
    & Senior Location Executive

    The highly anticipated launches of the new Sony PS 3 and Nintendo Wii game
    systems represent an important milestone for IBM™s Technology Collaboration
    Solutions business, especially for the IBM Burlington and East Fishkill sites.

    These new systems, along with Microsoft™s Xbox 360 released late last year, represent the culmination of IBM™s triple crown win as the provider of
    technology for next-generation game consoles. While each console takes a
    different approach to gaming, they all are powered by microprocessors
    developed, designed, manufactured and tested by IBM. Consumers now have more computing power plugged into their televisions than they have in the PCs sitting on their desks.

    This is a significant win in a fast growing marketplace, and our gaming
    technology is poised to not only transform consumer entertainment, but also
    other computing applications in medicine, science and education.

    Organizations and individuals across IBM Burlington have been key to the
    successful launch of these new game systems, from design, to mask
    manufacturing, to test and more.

    To celebrate, all Burlington employees are invited to enjoy a free meal on
    December 5 and 6 in the Building 969 cafeteria and on December 7 in the
    Building 861 cafeteria, during regular serving hours. Managers will
    provide you with a voucher for the free meal.

    Also, be sure to check out the new game systems in the cafeterias during
    the free meal.

    My thanks to the entire Burlington team for this success and a year full of
    accomplishment.

    John

    I don't really see how the part in bold makes sense.

    I agree, I laughed at that part. Um no the IBM chip in my Wii isn't more powerful than any of the PCs I own.

    how do you know?

    the reason I found this so interesting is that we don't know the details about the architecture of the chip, the folks at IBM DO.
