It's about the size of a Memory Stick Duo, it looks like.

Microprocessors are really small, but they contain millions of tiny transistors that are chemically etched into the silicon.

It's the CPU for the PS3. It's more powerfull than any computer CPU on today's market. The PS3 is rumored to use four Cell chips.

It's nota storage device! It's a CPU.

Think of it this way:

Pentium 4 Extreme Edition 3.8ghz - $1500

Cell - 10-20 times faster than that.

Times four

plus RAM with clock speed of 3.2-6.4 ghz.

equals major pwnage.

This is like five months old.

Anyhow. That's the PlayStation3 CPU. It's rumoured to go at more than 4GB. Maximum 8.0GB. It's been in development for the past three years which Sony, Toshiba, and IBM have been developing. As Piggus said, if it's RAM is that powerful. Major pwnage. I've read from sources saying that the Sony PS3 Entertainment Console will use nVidia Graphics. So far nothing else has been confirmed except the Cell(CPU), and a couple of new games.
