Sony to Showcase High-Speed "Cell Computing Board" at SIGGRAPH 2007


Sony will be exhibiting its newly developed "Cell Computing Board (prototype)" at "SIGGRAPH 2007" ( August 7th~9th at San Diego Convention Center, San Diego, California, USA).

Sony will be exhibiting its newly developed "Cell Computing Board (prototype)" at "SIGGRAPH 2007" ( August 7th~9th at San Diego Convention Center, San Diego, California, USA). The Cell chip is the product of a joint development project by IBM Corp., Sony, Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. (SCEI) and Toshiba Corp. Each chip contains a main processor and eight sub-processors to deliver around 230 GFlops of power. The "Cell Computing Board" also incorporates the RSX graphics processor to deliver high computational performance capable of handling large amounts of data at high speed while also achieving reductions in size and energy consumption.

The incorporation of RSX realizes arithmetic operation speeds beyond the 230 GFLOPS of the Cell/B.E. microprocessor alone. The prototype board can be embedded in a 1U (unit) sized server and mounted on a 19-inch rack.

This technology represents a new solution for multimedia computing applications such as computer graphics and scientific computations that require massive data quantities to be processed.

At SIGGRAPH 2007, Sony will demonstrate the following sample applications using the "Cell Computing Board".

- Demonstration of 4K Applications
Real time image processing of 4K images taking advantage of the high performance of "Cell Computing Board"

- Demonstration of CG Rendering

- Demonstration of Physics Simulation
Physics simulation taking advantage of the multi-thread processing ability of "Cell Computing Board"
