Cell to be demoed at NAB2007 for video market

Here's another feather to add to the Cell processor's cap. The PS3's Cell processor is slated for a demonstration at this year's NAB in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The story is too old to be commented.

"Mercury is championing the use of the Sony PS3's powerful multicore processor in a variety of non-gaming markets including medical imaging, video processing, and ray tracing."

Ray tracing of all things. I thought ray tracing was supposed to be heavy on the double precision floating point operations and considering that's what the Cell processor is not optimized for I have to wonder what they're talking about.
