Console-wars winner... IBM!

Guess who supplies the chipsets for all of the major game consoles? Guess whose micro-electronics division is now laughing all of the way to the bank?

After the IBM-PC series, it would&rquo;ve been difficult to pick IBM as the winner of a gaming anything, but now they seem to have picked the right layer to bask in.

“Ten years ago it would have been inconceivable that all the game processors would have used IBM product,” [hardware division officer, William] Zeitler said.

He pushes their success down to a more balanced chip design (focussing on other than CPU clock rates) & more balanced investor relationships.
