Hm. 768M of RAM on the CPU die? That seems pretty unlikely.

And why would you say that?
I imagine because most of the time memory on a CPU die is on the order of a few megs like 8 or 16, not almost a gig. Its much more likely that its integrated into something like the old intel slot CPU cards, rather than the die itself (although its likely the die will at least have the memory controller).

Its a technical distinction that probably got lost somewhere between Nintendo, the dev, and the website and perhaps other middlemen. Anyway, it doesn't much matter, the point is that its looking to have close to a gig of RAM.

agreed, on die would be nutz and expensive as hell to manufacture, maybe strapped l2 like p2... even if they did, shared with video would turn it into a fry pan for eggs and bacon.

the site is MIA so probably just a rumor... announcing 5 year old hardware really hurt nintendo in the market so I hope they just slapped that shit together to demo and real deal will be better then whats out now, even if just slightly it must be better...
