Overheard on the rumor mill…

IGN has revealed what they believe to be the hardware specs for Project Cafe today, along with estimating that the console will retail for anywhere from $350 to $400.

According to unnamed sources, Project Cafe will feature a “revamped version of AMD’s R700 GPU architecture”while the CPU will be a “custom-built triple-core IBM PowerPC chipset”….whatever that means. Apparently what that boils down to is that the new GPU will out perform even the PS3, while the CPU will be very similar to the Xbox 360 but will perform at a higher clocking speed.

Nintendo will be holding their quarterly investors meeting Monday April 25th in Japan, and many speculate that this is where Nintendo will formally acknowledge the existence of Project Cafe. And again, the world waits.
