It very hard for me to count accurate, it seem it have around 215 Cell CPUs on per wafer, wow that twice as many as dual core Athlon 64 X2 silicon on per wafer. It very good to see Sony make very plenty of Cell silicons, they probably will sell 1 million PS3 in the first 3 months. XBox 360 didnt made as many chips as Microsoft hoped to make 1 million consoles for the launch but they only managed to made less than 250,000 consoles now.

:lol: you think it dual core with 14 SPE? No The Cell silicon is rectangle, look at the 2nd picture and you will get the idea. If you not sure about it, here (http://www.pcstats.com/articleview.cfm?articleID=1727) what the Cell CPU look like.
