You have no idea what you are talking about. The Cell processor can be used to stream process data, but it is not a stream processor in the OpenCL context. They sound the same, but there are distinctions. Lets compare the Cell to a modern GPU. The cell has 1 PPE and 8 SPE. A Radeon HD 5070 has 1,600 stream processors. Stream processors are tiny and they do nothing but execute mathematical operations on sets of data. The SPEs in the Cell processor are gimped CPU cores. They can do MUCH more than the stream processors and they do it much faster. However, it's 1 PPE + SPE against thousands of stream processors. The stream processors completely outperform the Cell processor.
Highest performing cell right now : 0.5 Teraflops
Highest performing GPU right now : 6.5+ Teraflops with 3,200+ stream processors.
There is no comparison.
me..have no idea what i am taliking about?
the Cell processor is a stream processor, pure and simple that's a fact. gimped core's. god you are just as thick as the "if it's not x86" is crap for game's. that very way of thinking is what stunt's growth in computing.
you have a one track mind my friend just stop.
while i respect you I do not happen to agree with your take on how and which processor is classed in your IDEA what a stream processor is or is not.
I AM BOLO
