IBM's efforts to promote the Cell processor.
"With nine processor cores, 234 million integrated transistors, clock speeds topping 4GHz, and support for multiple operating systems, including Linux and real-time operating systems suited for home media devices, Cell may be most effective with the latest and greatest in embedded applications and consumer electronics, according to Hofstee.
