I am not saying what Mike posted is invalid. I'm saying it's already understood and not needed. Also, note this is about IBM, not IBM, Sony, and Toshiba. I only commented on IBM. What this article states is that IBM (not Sony or Toshiba) is haulting production of the successor to the Cell BE in the PS3 and moving to new things that will use aspects (such as architecture, or design, or many other possible things like ALUs, SPUs, IFUs, etc) of the Cell in them but will not any longer be a "Cell" product. Note that I also said that at any point anyone can commission them to produce another Cell CPU, such as Sony for the PS4.
id did not say "IN THE PS3" that i think is the problem with seeing what is open ended OPINION instead of Fact.
just because the PowerXCell is not being used does not mean there will not be some other Cell being used instead.
what you have is two story's on the Internet right now going on and both are told from someone getting the scoop, but IBM did not go into detail on what they are doing, and prob. never will for some time.
saying just because IBM haulted one "projected" or prototype design does not mean they are not going to have another Cell named processor.
I AM BOLO
