IBM publishes Cell processor docs

"Earlier this year, IBM, Sony, and Toshiba disclosed the architectural design of the jointly developed, multi-core 'Cell' processor, described as featuring eight synergistic processors, with supercomputer-like floating-point performance and clock speeds in excess of 4 GHz. At the time, the companies claimed that Cell delivers 'vastly improved, real-time response for entertainment and rich media applications, in many cases 10 times the performance of the latest PC processors.' Examples of anticipated applications include digital televisions, home servers, and supercomputers."
