IBM ships 50 millionth Wii CPU

No surprise really


IBM has
announced shipment of its 50 milllionth Broadway CPU for Nintendo's Wii console.

IBM's Broadway is a 90nm SOI part, clocked at 729MHz and designed especially for the Wii. The announcement comes expectedly, only days after ATI revealed it has shipped 50 million Holywood GPUs for the popular console.

Obviously we can expect Nintendo's announcement of shipping 50 million Wii consoles in a few weeks, but you sholdn't hope for a price cut any time soon. Over the past two and a half years, the console's price has not been dropped, and recently Nintendo decided to jack up the price for the British market, thanks to the weak pound.
