ABSTRACT
Eight synergistic processor units enable the Cell Broadband Engine's breakthrough performance. The SPU architecture implements a novel, pervasively data-parallel architecture combining scalar and SIMD processing on a wide data path. A large number of SPUs per chip provide high thread-level parallelism.
