The economist has reported that the upcoming PS3 may contain 4 cell microprocessors. Given the theoretical power of these new chips, this pegs the PS3 at a maximum of 1000GFlops. That's right. 1000GFlops!!!! This would put the Sony PS3 at number 400 on the top500 supercomputer list. This is amazing. If the thing only runs at 1/10th what Sony claims, the PS3 will still be 5 times faster than the fastest thing on the market today. (The fastest commercial chip available runs at about 20GFlops) I hope this Sony/IBM/Apple deal gets these Cell chips in the PowerMac soon. Thoughts???
