Hacker releases PS3 RSX Data Dumps

A hacker known as 'StrontiumDog' has shared with the development community PS3 RSX data dumps. They are only 'human readable'.

The hacker says he's releasing them because a lot of information is contained within them, and hacking Nvidia's GPU's is a 'specialist field'.

He hopes some smart folk can take the files and provide info to allow full RSX access under Linux. The Dog also expressed confidence in this as as a result his cursory scan of the data and functions that exist in the PS3 Hypervisor. The data does indeed reveal structures of crtical memory, register, layout and so forth.

pixel and vertex shader pipelines.

I think only two or three people in the whole world know the exact numbers ;-)

Almost so obscure like the Wii hardware numbers. Maybe by the same motive: no direct comparisons.

I think they have 24 pixel pipelines and 6 vertex pipelines.
