"David Turek, confirmed that the Cell processor has reached the end of the line. Turek then put a more positive spin on the news by stating the obvious truth that heterogeneous multiprocessors, of which Cell was the first mass-market example of, are here to stay, so insofar as IBM continues to produce such chips, Cell's basic concepts and ideas will live on in the company's product line."

So as I said and as everyone said in every previous article and thread about this, the Cell itself is discontinued but they will continue to produce heterogeneous multiprocessors using the Cell's basic concepts and ideas.
