Cell Processor Decodes 48 MPEG2 Streams


CellToshiba has shown a film that shows the Cell processor simultaneously decoding 48 MPEG2 streams at the same time. I didn’t know that the cell processor was in production, even in samples, and this article doesn’t mention if this was a simulation or the real thing. But it heavily suggests the latter. If this is indeed the case, this is quite an accomplishment. Has Sony said how many of these processors will be in the PS3? Hmm….

The above article also links to another article – an interview with Sony’s Ken Kutaragi about the cell processor.
