IBM Discloses Cell Based Blade Server Board Prototype
IBM Discloses Cell Based Blade Server Board Prototype -- Tech-On!: "The prototype, called the Cell Processor Based Blade Server, measured approximately 23 x 43 cm. Each board featured two Cell processors, two 512 Mb XDR DRAM chips and two South Bridge LSIs. The Cell processors were demonstrated running at 2.4-2.8 GHz. 'We are driving the Cell processors at higher rates in the laboratory,' said the engineer. 'If operated at 3 GHz, Cell's theoretical performance reaches about 200 GFLOPS, which works out to about 400 GFLOPS per board,' he added. IBM plans to release a rack product capable of storing seven of these boards."
