Samsung manufacturing PS Vita CPU

Mmm, chips.

Samsung will manufacture the CPU for PlayStation Vita, according to a new report.

Japanese industry journal Semiconductor Industry News spilled the beans (via Andriasang).

The report said Samsung will use a 45 nanometer manufacturing process to make the Vita CPU chips.

There's no supporting evidence, but given Samsung's experience as a system on chip (SOC) maker for the smartphone industry, this seems like a natural fit.

PlayStation Vita uses an ARM Cortex A9 core (4 core) CPU.

PlayStation Vita has no UK release date nor official price. We expect to hear more at Gamescom in mid-August.

Yesterday, Reality Fighters developer Novarama corroborated a rumour that Sony had cut the amount of RAM on PlayStation Vita units. Memory dropped from "baaaaaa" to "baaa".
