The Potential of Science With the Cell Processor

roadrouter Benchmark (176 comments)

I don't understand how they can compare the new Cell with a amd64 or an Itanuim and be so happy.

Cell have 8 vector processor and something like a ppc to "control" all of them, it's done specially for FP operations. It's like a comparation of a GPU with a CPU, it haven't got so much sense.
