Abstract

The heart of the Sony PlayStation 3, the STI CELL processor, was not originally intended for scientific number crunching, and the PlayStation 3 itself was not meant primarily to serve such purposes. Yet, both these items may impact the High Performance Computing world. This introductory article takes a closer look at the cause of this potential disturbance.
