    We now know that this sheet must be hoax as it talks about a "32nm process" whereas IBM has to say:

    "IBM plans to produce millions of chips for Nintendo featuring IBM Silicon on Insulator (SOI) technology at 45 nanometers (45 billionths of a meter)."
    http://www-03.ibm.com/press/us/en/pressrelease/34683.wss

    No information on core count (just "multi-core") or frequency, unfortunately. And Nintendo doesn't reveal any better info either:

    "CPU: IBM Power®-based multi-core microprocessor."

    So let's wait and see if the older triple-core rumour turns out true.
