    - PPE has 128 VMX registers now, and a dot product instruction (I

    6 SPEs are available to applications - as speculated/expected by many,
    a SPE is reserved by the OS.

    For the first time, Sony references the architecture RSX was based on
    specifically - the NV47. 24 2D texture lookups simultaneously = 24
    pixel pipelines. 384 flops/clock.

    Two models for RSX programming:

    PSGL - high level
    libgcm - low level, to the metal

    I'll update as I get more out of Google.

    the important info is the confirmation that PS3's RSX GPU is based on
    the NV47 (G70)

    I can only guess at how SAD AirRaid's life must be - his sole motivatation
    being to belittle a certain games console, however futile this one man war
    will be eventually. PS3 is merely a toy at the end of the day, as is X360 or
    Revolution...or any other games console. It'd be like a Sindy doll lover
    waging a war on Barbie.....it's fucking ludicrous.

    I also see he has been booted off many forums for similar spamming.


    As I say, how sad?
