Hi Everyone,

David Wang just finished up a great summary of IBM's presentation at ISSCC 2008 regarding their 3rd generation of the CELL microprocessor.

I'd like to thank David for taking the time from his busy schedule to attend ISSCC and write up this presentation (he's way ahead of me in that regard).

Personally, I found that the 45nm CELL presentation was very interesting, since the optimization target that many focus on (GHz) is irrelevant. The beauty/challenge of designing a console is that once you commit to a frequency, you cannot use chips any slower or faster. Instead, fast chips might be used at a lower voltage bin, etc. Given this situation, it's interesting to see the approach that IBM's engineers took - especially given the constraints of IBM's 45nm process.

Enjoy,

David
