Sony PS3: Recent updates provide 70MB RAM extra for devs

Sony has confirmed that 70MB of additional RAM has become available for developers use, following recent background updates to the PS3’s infrastructure system.

As reported from Joystiq, It has also been confirmed that the PS3 OS’s memory footprint has been reduced from 120MB to 50MB, freeing up the 70MB for developers.

Its worth noting out that while 70MB is not a huge amount of memory for developers to make ‘significant’ changes, it could mean the difference between a few effects tweaks or resolution settings.

Still, its nice to know for PS3 owners that Sony can make such changes to the system, via a simple firmware update. Let us know your thoughts on this guys.

not an enormous amount of difference, especially when you consider it still requires full access to an SPE, and access to another on demand.
and even 50MB could be considered quite a bit, since the xbox OS uses 32MB of RAM, 1% of CPU time on cores 0 and 1, but still manages to be faster in-game, and achieve many more things.
