That reminds me, my old OG PS3 is in dire need of some new thermal paste and a clean out. As potent as the Cell can be it does run toasty!
I doubt that the level of detail achieved by any of the aforementioned titles was obtained by solely relying on the RSX GPU alone. There's a lot of other great examples, but that'd be too big of a list to include in a post as small as this!
but sony is using it on their new tempest engine they just arent calling it CELL. The Tempest engine is a 8 core DMA chip almost identical in design to CELL.
