Initial reports of Cell demos have been very favorable, but only time will tell. Early demos do tend to be tightly controlled affairs.


I don't expect the different programming model to be a show-stopper.


Excellent point about the compiler optimizations and chipsets. A company with the scope, size and organizational capacity of IBM should be able to overcome those types of problems.

    A show stopper no but a significant obsticle yes.

    I would not be so sure about IBM overcoming this issue quickly and confidently. They had same said resources and look where the G5 ended.
