A processor that is very good for general computing and extremely optimized for streaming computation. Take a deep look in the upcoming CPU+GPU combination from AMD.
AMD have a good expertise in processor communication and now, with ATI, could create a ultra efficient general processor and graphics amalgam.
It does sound like a "Cell+RSX clone", but I wouldn't call it a "Cell+RSX killer" since they're not competing and we won't see AMD fusion for another 2-4+ years.
It would be a failure if it didn't beat current technology in terms of power by then.
ps3 aint ever maxin out no one said they were merging a supercomputer and a gpu like with ps3 if you knew what really happens with ps3s already 2.18tflops when cell and rsx merge you wouldnt say anything will surpass ps3 even after that point and also blue ray
Yes because the CELL will survive in its current state forever, It will never be surpassed by any thing, 300 years from now if humanity survives we'll have bio computers capable of 100 pflops, But humanity will be like. DAMN why dont we use cell?!
AMD have always been my favourite, i believe that AMD can make better processors then Intel, and so i will be looking into this with great hopes
i use to like Nvidia but now i am using
AMD Athlon 64bit 3400+
ATI Radeon X800 GTO PowerColour
so i guess im already ok with AMD buying ATI lol
