Things have been too busy for me to write any more articles lately. To tide you over, here is something I found interesting:
The Cell Processor is going to be the heart and soul of the next Playstation. It is a joint effort between Sony, Toshiba, and IBM. It is supposed to run on everything from the PS3 to workstations. More interesting than what it will be used in, however, is what it is all about. What does the Cell processor look like? What are its advantages and disadvantages compared to traditional CISC or RISC processors? AnandTech takes a careful look at the Cell. If you have any interest in processors, give this article a read.
