Wow, not bad
I don't mind Intel stepping in either. We'll see what comes out from AMD next to beat this
I wonder what the heat dissapitation will be like on this? Better than the Prescott I hope...
Anyhow, the Cell is being produced for the PS3 by Sony, Toshiba and IBM. It consists of a main core with 512mb of cache I believe, and 7 (8 - one is out of use for the moment) SPE's, which are like 7 cores running at once, helping the main core run, all with cache of their own.
Its very powerful anyway. The Cell at the moment stands at 3.2GHZ.
