Scalability, efficiency, and programmability are essential for using the Cell processor in consumer electronics. A real-time resource scheduler virtualizes the processor cores and ensures the application of real-time constraints at the system level. These features let the platform control resource usage and helps exploit the power management features implemented in the Cell processor.
