Cell Processors Power A Speedy New Processor Technology – Siggraph 2006

Siggraph/ACM is well known for cutting edge technology and this conference was no exception. In this interview with Mercury Computer Systems’ Joel Radford, we discuss the Cell Processor, a new processor technology that will be seen in the the soon to be released Sony Playstation 3. Cell is a heterogeneous chip multiprocessor that consists of an IBM 64-bit Power Architecture™ core, augmented with eight specialized co-processors, and makes dual-core’s positively look old-fashioned! Recorded at the Siggraph/ACM Conference in Boston, Massachusetts, in August 2006 by Harris Fogel. Posted 10/04/2006 (5:25)
