    I'm afraid you need to be more specific.
    The PS3 contains a Cell B.E CPU, some of the SPE units are not available to programmers of videogames, some are reserved for OS usage and some are not enabled because of manufacturing yields.
    In every sense, the Cell B.E in the PS3 is a regular Cell B.E.
