    Hey,
    the CELL processor from IBM has nine cores.It is clocked at 4GhZ
    Can you beat that! Soonly we will say good bye to dual core processors,when there are nine core processors round the corner.

    The Cell Processor is the Default Processor in PlayStation 3..

    The Linux Kernel 2.6.16 Officially Supports the Processor and the Processor Architecture is Open-Source too.

    hmmm. I am kind of done with drooling over processor specifications. In a couple of years this cell processor will be 'outdated'.The same type of hype surrounded the Emotion engine. Look where it is now.
