Apple to use Intel not PowerPC chips

Infendo

What does that have to do with Nintendo you may ask? A lot. Nintendo’s last and next generation consoles both use the IBM PowerPC processing chip. Granted, this news won’t cause an uproar in the gaming processor industry, but Apple is reporting that a main reason for the switch is the chip’s inability to keep up with Intel and AMD chips.

Again, gaming is about gaming not technology, but it will be interesting to see how this news will effect, if at all, the buzz perceived with the upcoming Revolution launch. What do you think?
