    The memory bandwidth is even more impressive...

    It says it's "OS neutral". An OS would just recognize it as x86? Available in 2006 it looks like - Intel will have hit 4 GHz by then, but not with specs as advanced as this chip...

    Consoles are just streamlined, game specific towers at this point. It is funny that the PS3 will be, well, quite a bit faster than my computer.

    But it could be so much more. I modded my xbox with an 80 gig hdd, put a mod chip in it, reflashed the bios, and stuck a new dashboard on it. I can now copy games and movies that i rent. Yea, I'm a tard I know. But imagine what you might be able to do with this? It could be a fully functioning pc........

    Are we talking about solder modding or non-solder modding? Because one doesn't carry as much weight in skills as the other.

    I fear the hardware mods. I do it like a woman and pay some one else to solder.

    The cell is supposed to be capable of over 200 gigaflops, a current P4 can do about 20.

    It´s probably not going to be THAT amazing when it comes out though.
