what processor does soney use and how does it work?
Sony used the IBM Cell Broadband Engine processor. This very advanced processor contains a 64 bit power PC with an additional 8 Synergistic Processing Elements (SPE). These SPEs are Vector (Dimensional) processors that each having 265 Kilobytes of memory. The SPEs are engineered in such a way that they cannot access the rest of the memory in the CPU, it can only be written to and from it.
