    RE CELL

    sgimipsprst:
    ------------
    Actually - based on comments here I had given up on MIPS being "part" of cell and then had expected CELL to be one monster innovation that would be written about everywhere as a true major threat to intel amd mips and arm
    ------------

    MIPS was never going to be part of Cell.

    Cell is a threat - after all it's already killed of the console market for MIPS.

    -------------
    CELL appears to be a muscle bound non innovation looking for a purpose and place in a market where standards and support etc are key
    -------------

    Why isn't cell innovation?

    --------------
    MIPS invested a lot of time and effort in building itself into the "other" standard
    --------------

    What "other" standard would this be?

    --------------
    CELL as a non innovation IMO - will thus need to do the same - start all over in essence - at minimum - to have any chance of being anything other then an interesting but unneeded alternative to MIPS and ARM in their respective market zones ...
    --------------

    With due respect, you haven�t got a clue what you are talking about. Cell *will* have the home console market and Cell *will* be used in IBM workstations, servers and mainframes.

    It's penetration into other markets (PC, home, phone etc) is dependent on so many different factors - many of them you wouldn�t understand (if your post is anything to go by).

    If you remove all the hype, problems and issues, Cell has still got massive things going for it.
