    What's the optimum, max, usual etc temp of chips and hardware. Why is 85c unlikely. No nothing about hardware. :confused:

    Why can't Cell run at 85 deg C? It's a Power core with some added on APU's. The G5 processor from IBM, also a Power based chip, is designed to run at 85 deg C. If the G5 can be used in my 5cm thick iMac why not a console with a custom cooling solution? The Cell processor will also be on a more advanced process probably 65nm with SOI which will reduce the size and power consumption. Even with 8 APU's a Cell chip will probably use less transistors than an Athlon 64 or Pentium .
    Let's wait and see what the ISSCC brings next month.
