New microprocessor code-named Cell

During a presentation at the International Solid State Circuits Conference (ISSCC) &to=http:// english.pravda.ru/world/2001/02/12/2462.html ' target=_blank>IBM, Sony and Toshiba disclosed in detail the multi-core architectural design of their jointly developed microprocessor code-named Cell. The Cell is capable of showing clock speeds greater than 4 GHz.

A team of IBM, Sony Group and Toshiba engineers has collaborated on development of the Cell microprocessor at a joint design center established in Austin, Texas, since March 2001. The prototype chip integrates 234 million transistors, and is fabricated with 90 nanometer SOI technology.

Cell's multi-core architecture and ultra high-speed communications capabilities deliver an improved, real-time response for entertainment and rich media applications, in many cases 10 times the performance of the latest &to=http:// english.pravda.ru/printed.html?news_id=14542' target=_blank>PC processors, reports Geekzone.News.
