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).
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.
