    I have to excuse myself to start this post off. I am not a specialist at things like this. I understand it to be difficult, and I recognize the statements made over at that this is just marketing hype.

    But to bluntly put it, if Sony can pull off even half of this hyped up promise it'll be an amazing jump in technology. Although it could just be my affinity for modular things that makes me interested.

    With the PS 3, Sony will apparently put 72 processors on a single chip: eight PowerPC microprocessors, each of which controls eight auxiliary processors.

    Using sophisticated software to manage the workload, the PowerPC processors will divide complicated problems into smaller tasks and tap as many of the auxiliary processors as necessary to tackle them.
