IBM Cell-BE SIgnal Processor

Wow, I've been offline for way too long. What would have me so engrossed, you ask? Would you believe a project built off an IBM Cell-BE processor? Now at 45nm, this processor is a small wonder. I must say that I had my doubts when I started to evaluate the chip but now I'm a believer.

Sorry to report that my Cell SP project was canceled. I had just finished a major port and achieved some impressive performance. Still, all is not lost, I'm looking for other solutions like GPUs ... should be fun.
