Who cares about this overhyped CPU? Not me!
The Cell is very powerful on paper BUT it is so difficult to program for that in practice much of it goes to waste. Also, contrary to popular belief; the CPU is NOT an 8 core CPU, it is single core with up to 8 co-processors tacked on. The co processors or SPEs CANNOT do general purpose computations, this limits their effectiveness in a lot of applications.
I'm not expecting this CPU to dethrone Intel or AMD.....ever.
