      Probably 4.21/4.25 minimum.

      I am tempted to buy one of these. Might see if one of the kids want one for Xmas!

      I think 4.15 is what it says on [MENTION=26529]atlask[/MENTION]s video.

      Seems this is using an unlisted/unavailable release as we went from 4.11 to 4.20 as I recall?

      Are you talking about the Nazi SS?

      It's just another PS3 Slim but its model number is 4000.

      By the way, it would be interesting if the 4.15 FW could be made for download, maybe someone would find something useful on it.

      "Super Slim" isn't the official name, nor is it "Ultra Slim" the only name that's officially usable is Slim.

      IGN was one of the first that I remember who started using it and since they're always strict about copyright they shouldn't have "coined" this custom title.

      There aren't good in math :

      Hynix H5RS5223DFA 512 Mb GDDR3 VRAM (times four chips = 256 MB) 4x 256 = 1gb

      Elpida X1032BBBG-3C-F 1 Gb (on two chips for 256 MB total) XDR DRAM 2x 256 = 512Mb

      What they wrote was a bit confusing, but:

      512mb x 4 is indeed equal to 256MB
      1gb x 2 is also equal to 256MB

      mb = megabit, gb = gigabit, MB = megabyte

      This new PS3 now has more GDDR3 VRAM than the previous PS3 Slim models?

      Wrong

      512 mb (Megabits) = 64*4 MB= 256MB (Megabytes).

      1 byte= 8 bits
