News has just surfaced stating that the PS3 has passed FCC approval tests and that the final clock speed of the Cell processor is 3.2GHz. The FCC is the regulatory body in the United States which regulates communication through radio, television, wire, cable and satellite.
The clock speed of the PlayStation 3's Cell processor has been the subject of debate for some time, after certain internet news sites reported that it had been downgraded since the PlayStation 3 was first unveiled last year.
Sony has yet to comment on this news or release any press material, however we can verify that the report is legitimate as it is currently on the official FCC site.
The PlayStation 3 will launch on November 11th in Japan and on November 17th in North America. Launch dates for other regions have not been confirmed and have been estimated at March 2007.
