    Hi folks,

    Here is a link to a detailed explanation of the Cell processor produced by a joint effort of IBM and other manufacturers. It is a very powerful processor unlike any I have ever read about before.

    Enjoy!

    I've heard about this processor in the past, mostly from its association with the PS3. Bit of a beast with 256million transistors!! (Compare this with the 42million transistors in the Pentium 4)

    Thanks for the link there are some interesting details on the site.
