Today, at an industry show in San Francisco, the CELL processor which will run the PS3 was revealed. The chip has been in development for three years and is a joint project between IBM, Toshiba, and Sony. The CELL processor is revolutionary in the sense that it has 8 small "cores" of processors on one chip as opposed to one large core. This allows the chip to run faster and more effeciently with the ability to share tasks and handle multiple requests simultaneously. The chip is said to run at 4GHz but, in practice, due to its unique design some say it will be up to 10 times faster than the best chip out today. The chip will run the PS3 and Toshiba plans to use it in TVs starting in 2006. For more info about the chip go here.
