    It's not a game console CPU. It just happens to be in the new PS3. It's like saying the PPC is a game console CPU as it is in the new Nintendo consoles. Grr. :p

    There have been many who have said that the Cell processor is not well suited to general purpose computing, but a blade server isn't quite as general purpose as a desktop.
