View Full Version : How is the Cell a Good Game Processor?

This is more of a question than a flame. From what I have read and understood, I just don't see how its good for running game engines.

A nice technical explanation on either why it is, or why it isn't would be nice. There has to be people in here who understand on a code level how a game engine works and how that would and wouldn't work with the Cell's architecture.

All those over blown numbers is a classic example of Sony marketing at it's finest!!!

The Cell has potential in future revisions, but I think it was a bit ahead of its time for a console use.
