The one and only
that's not a isue because sony already said that their main concern is to make it more easy to delope programs for the console, lets hope that tey keep their promise.INCA said:Yeah it would be good to replace the existing hardware. But Cell seems to good to be true. If they are gonna release cell they can't have more than two since no one will code programs to run all of them. Also like most sony consoles the cell will be hard to write games for.
I read (I think at theregister.com) that Sony says that Cell will be "OS-neutral", so I'm not sure if that means Windows support or not. My guess is if M$ cant get it easily working under xp, they'll wait till longhorn.I can't answer your question, but it sounds REALLy expensive.
edit: Oh btw, I don't think it's going to run Windows would it? I read it's going to support Linux though.
Would this mean that our current set of programming language is going to be reduced back to using ASM and current programming language will be out the door?Kane said:The OS-neutral is refering to the Cell requiring low-level programming (ASM essentialy) and an app for the Cell would essentialy bypass the OS' hardware abstraction layer.
