    Oh... now those are fightin' words...

    You do realize that the Cell is a PPC chip and is universally accepted as the most powerful and most scalable architecture that is currently available on the market, right?

    A single 8 core Cell processor running at 3.2 GHz can perform 102 GFLOPS.
    That's a processor from last year, btw.
    That is compared to the Intel Core 2 Quad Q9550 at 2.83 GHz which is capable of 2.91 GFLOPS.

    cell is one ppc core (with 2 threads per core) and 8 spu cores.
    only ppc core can run os
