IGN: Project Cafe – the tech behind the system & more, possibly named “Stream”

According to sources with knowledge of the project, Nintendo’s next console could have a retail cost of anywhere between $350 and $400, and will ship from Taiwanese manufacturer, Foxconn, this October, putting the earliest possible retail release anywhere between mid-October and early November.

Additionally, IGN has learned that the system will be based on a revamped version of AMD’s R700 GPU architecture, not AMD’s Fusion technology as previously believed, which will, as previously reported, out perform the PlayStation 3’s NVIDIA 7800GTX-based processor. Like the Xbox 360, the system’s CPU will be a custom-built triple-core IBM PowerPC chipset, but the clocking speeds will be faster. The system will support 1080p output with the potential for stereoscopic 3D as well, though it has not been determined whether that will be a staple feature

Finally, Nintendo is considering naming the console Stream, though it is potentially one of several names currently being vetted by the company. .

Wow, I would love if the next Nintendo console would hit this year, would be awesome.
