You would be very naieve to think the CPU in the PS3 NOW beats everything out there- this was in 2005 probably a HUGE improvement over the marketed PC's you saw in that era.
Technology changes so fast, so I can't say which CPU is most like the PS3 because I'd hope in this case it's faster than the PS3's I'm only detailing that the power of the Cell is amazing and is here to stay.
rofl. That sounds like I said i7 runs at 2fps during Crysis and Sony FTW 11!!!1! or something.
