Sony debuts new hybrid multicore Cell/B.E. platform: It's called ZEGO (for "Zest to Go"; link to press release and video) and it is a hybrid workflow solution that lets you process high-resolution effects and computer graphics fast based on Cell/B.E. and RSX technologies. So watch out you post-production and rendering bottlenecks. It will run first on the Sony BCU-100 computing unit, with Cell/B.E. processors handling arithmetic operations (with speeds up to 230gflops) and RSX chips doing the high-performance graphics processing. The unit also comes with XDR high-speed memory, is in a tiny 1U size and can be mounted in a 19inch rack, and manages to keep power consumption down to 330W or less. You can see a product review of the system here.
