You do know that IBM is embeding it in Servers right? It's not solely used for the Playstation 3.

Oh and the Emotion Engine is actually pretty powerful but requiring developers to code for it in Assembly aswell as only giving it 4MB of texture memory hurt it.

and

http://www.cs.berkeley.edu/~samw/projects/cell/CF06.pdf

Before spouting sentences, maybe you should educate yourself a little...

201 SP Gflops on SGEMM and 155 Gflops on SP Linpack on a single 3.2 GHz chip is far more powerful. If you don't know what GEMM and Linpack are, you can't talk about supercomputing.

Oh, and regarding the decoding, I suggest to take a look at table 10 in the ibm link I provided. MPEG2 decoding, HDTV 18 Mbps video, a single SPE of the CELL can decode about 70 frames per second. I'd say that's more than enough power to decode almost any kind of video, and we're talking about a single SPE.

You can downplay the PS3 and/or Sony as much as you like, but the CELL is a potentially interesting processor. Whether it is the right choice for a gaming console is another question altogether, but downplaying it only because of your hate for Sony is, in my opinion, stupid.


PS: Disclaimer, I do scientific research and (super)computing for a living. I couldn't care less for gaming consoles.

Saying I hate Sony is stupid. I have 2 70" Sony displays that stare at me every night when I come home.

Two letters: BD

Biggest piece of **** format ever conceived, which is delaying high definition video indefinitely.

Sony's display division is a very innovative group that uses no hype, only results. SCE does the latter. All hype, no results.
