More Bad PS3 News: GPU Clock Speeds Cut

In yet another round of bad news for Sony and hopefuly PlayStation 3 owners everywhere, Sony has had to hack away at one of the upcoming console's key features; the GPU clock speeds. NVIDIA's RSX graphics processor, which was originally set to run at 550 MHz (for the processor) and 700 MHz (for the memory), has seen its speed cut down to 500/650, representing an 8% drop in the GPU's overall speed. While, at first glance, this drop seems negligible, it's just one more thing bringing down the power of Sony's new "super" console.
