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.

1. I'm not comparing CPU's hence how I didn't mention any comparison to the i7 980x, I can't compare them! the first user who posted said it better my self different architects - different platforms.

2. The Cell is Old, but it has function.

3. Tell me where I can pickup a 9core CPU @ 3.2GHz for 200$
1. The thread title 'i7 980x vs PS3 Cell Processor' So if you're not comparing then get out the thread.

2. A Pentium 3 has function

3. What's amazing is that you're too silly to understand that Cell doesn't have 9 cores for a few reasons.

- In technical terms Cell has 1 core which is the IBM PowerPC core and 7 FLOATING POINT CO-PROCESSORS.....the SPU's are not cores. A core is a chip which can run multiple programming languages and instruction sets. The SPU's can only handle floating point arithmetic.

And if in your non-functioning brain you still think that SPU's ARE cores then your still wrong as PS3 has 8 cores and not 9 = You still fail.

Cell is meant to have 8 SPU's but the Cell inside PS3 only has 7 as Sony disable 1 SPU for redundancy to get the yields up. The 8th SPU on PS3's Cell does not and will never be unlocked or function.

Yes! i know, the PPE and it's SPU's I say core because it's easier for people to understand.

At first users were saying the cores only ran at 400Mhz, The Pentium 3 isn't made like the Cell.


I explained why they aren't cores in my big post about the cell, you didn't read my previous post okay ill quote it again!!!!! ****.


Lol the user who quoted my big post was right, give up now! lol.

I was demonstrating that for 200$ and some Linux, you have a marvellous PC which not only kicks ass, has some serious power. All I wanted to say to you people - I like console hardware it facinates me how it's improved.

I build Pc's, I thought maybe someone here would of understood the bargain it is to have hardware like that for 200$

a user already posted saying he spent more on his graphics card, but his graphics card isn't a complete System like the Ps3.


antuk, find me the same CPU though in a PC thats around 200$ : \\


Im not the PS3 troll saying It can run crysis, I'm saying look the cell cpu is sweet and for 200$ who's complaining?

Linux doesn't run on the SPU's so it's only running on the PowerPC core, And that's powerful to you? Linux on a single core? You must have low expectations.

And as I've already pointed out, Cell is about as fast as an Athlon 2 x4 which are A LOT cheaper then $200.

And on top of that PS3 can't run Linux anymore anyway so you have no point or argument.

You didn't even readdd my cell post I posted about how the PS3 can run linux and that Graf_Chokolo has unlocked the SPU's


my gawd, where's my cheese wire.


Look Penguins!!!



Even the Slims run Linux


WHO PUT 9 PENGUINS IN MY LINUX STARTUP!!!!!!!!!!


Maybe the 2 Big ones are like the Daddy Core, but there's 2 Parents to that 1 Core so it's 2!!! like just in the PPE, and the 7 smaller penguins are like the children co-helpers, not queit like the Parent Cores. Wowwww


Oh ya I wasn't going to link the article but if you want to try reading.

The Cell CPU maybe a AMD Athlon 2 x4 in disguize!!! sony might of went Supercheat! maybe thats why the cell is seling in the Ps3 for only 200$? They went with AMD instead!!!


Sure the "CPU" of the Athlon 2 x4 is under 200$, The PS3 is a complete system not just a CPU that can output 1080p alone but a decent enough graphics card as well and more goodies such as Bluetooth HDMI out.

And on top of that, research more before posting.

What comparing a 980x to a cell .

The 980x rapes end of.

The ps3 makes a reasonable cheap pc and the cell is fairly powerfull.
