THE LATEST VIDEO GAME war between Microsoft, Nintendo and Sony already has a victor.
With Power chips in the Vole Xbox 360 and Wii and a Cell chip in the PS3, IBM is laughing all the way to the bank.
According to the Baltimore Sun, Biggish Blue is likely to sell $3.7 billion worth of chips and associated design services this year. Last year it made $2.9 billion and the year before "only" $2.5 billion.
This is not bad dosh considering that only a few years ago analysts thought that IBM was set to sell off its microelectronics division because the outfit was losing cash.
It is surprising to have such good figures in a year that IBM lost one of its bigger Power chip customers, Apple, which moved to Intel.
