Howdy people, though people in this forum might like to read this article - http://www.blachford.info/computer/Cells/Cell0.html. Very, very interesting when he mentions the potential for Cell chips in AV processing (for a parallelizable function such as this, a single Cell chip will have the same number-crunchability as 5 dual-core Opterons!!, and theres going to be 4 Cells in a PS3!!). HTPC's will never be the same again! Anyhow, it can get a bit techie if youre green about CPU design (though not that much considering the subject matter) but its definitely worth it.
