Hot on the heels of the Intel Core Cuo 2, IBM has finally announced a non-console version of the "Cell" processor used in the PS3. I personally want to see how the Cell will do in normal computers.

It's being marketed as a device for "compute-intensive" operations, which confirms expectations that Cell would be introduced on the high end, and touted for its number-crunching ability. Each QS20 blade will feature a pair of Cells, each of which is what the STI coalition -- Sony, Toshiba, and IBM -- describes as a "multi-element" processor, rather than "multicore."
