Cell chip gets demo'd at COOL Chips VIII

In one of the first (the first I know of anyway) public exhibitions of what the cell processor can actually do, Toshiba demonstrated the cell processor simultaneously decoding 48 SDTV resolution MPEG-2 videos. woah. This is what's going to be powering the Playstation 3. We'll see how developers take advantage of this. I'm sure we'll get Xbox360-like leaks the sooner we get to the Playstation 3 release date.
