Sony did, apparently, put more than a billion big ones into developing their processor so that it's really, really good at crunching tons and tons of numbers. Their big goal was that you could put tons and tons of pixels on the screen, really really fast. Just another reason I prefer the Wii.Heheh, they're "supercomputers" apparently.
In a way they are, they can process huge amounts of data very quickly, but again you can't hook them together and have a true 'supercomputer'.Heheh, they're "supercomputers" apparently.
Sure you can. Ever heard of the SETI screensaver and that thing used to find prime numbers?In a way they are, they can process huge amounts of data very quickly, but again you can't hook them together and have a true 'supercomputer'.
You know I can't resist that sort of a challenge. I'll be back!PS3 is out. I'm sure you can google up the numbers for it.

I know the PS3 is expensive as dick, but I can't build a PC with that much go-go juice for $900, let alone $599. Someone call my boss and get me a raise.
We get it, you like Google.You know I can't resist that sort of a challenge.
That's because the company takes a loss on the consoles. Oh, and don't forget the PS3 doesn't come with a monitor.I know the PS3 is expensive as dick, but I can't build a PC with that much go-go juice for $900, let alone $599. Someone call my boss and get me a raise.
