A spate of processor news seems to have hit us in late summer. No doubt due to the Intel Developers Forum (IDF) where Intel introduced a revamped processor strategy of sorts. Front row coverage can be found here. Did I here someone say performance/watt! Not to be outdone, IBM, Sony, and Toshiba announced more details on the Cell Processor. You can find different forms of documentation at two sites: IBM (registration required for some information) and Sony. Funny, they released this information on the last day of IDF. Timing is everything they say. And AMD? Well seems they have the goods for now and are ready to prove it.
