Cell demonstrated

as it seems, last week on the COOL Chips VIII-show in Yokohama, Japan, Toshiba demonstrated the much rumoured Cell-chip, which is going to be found in the upcoming Playstation3…

The chip consists of eight cores and in the demonstration shown, it’s able to decode 48 MPEG2-streams simultaneously… and that’s on 6 cores (8 streams per core) one is used for scaling the screen and one is … idle :-)

Is this some good propaganda for showing the chip’s potential? OMG
