This is not the normal way in which I think of Big Blue
, but Microsoft has turned to IBM for the chips for the next version of the XBOX
. The first version of the chip was done by Intel, but I guess that Microsoft has not been happy with them or something. They were tallking quite a bit with AMD about supplying the chips for XBOX2, but it seems that IBM beat them out at the last minute. I read about it here
on the Reuters
website, and it seems from this article that Sony PlayStation is the next target for IBM ---- watch out Intel!
