    The Xenon processor in the Xbox 360 was a 3 core IBM PowerPC CPU. The Cell processor was a 2 thread PowerPC CPU, with 7 SPEs added to do vector calculations. The 360 GPU was more powerful than that...

    The Cell Processor could do vector calculations with its SPEs, nothing like SLI. Sony, at one point was going to use the Cell as a GPU, but later scrapped that idea. The graphics were rarely the...

    I don't recall where I'd heard that, but this snippet shows that 1066 Mhz DDR3 has the same bandwidth as the XDR used in the PS3.

    It was about memory management. Oblivion was optimized for PS3 and had a longer draw distance. Once developers started making the PS3 the lead platform, the PS3 started getting most of the better...

    I donít think that the 360 used DDR3. Sony started replacing XDR RAM with DDR3 in the later models.

    *Edit*

    *360 had 512MB of unified GDDR3 RAM @700 MHz. Itís pretty much DDR2 speed.

    I think that Mega Drive is a pretty cool name. Dreamcast and Genesis just don't sound that cool.

    It was the clones that did well. The Tandy 1000 was doing so well, that some games had an option for Tandy Graphics. PC really didnít come into its own until the end of the 80ís, into the early 90s.

    The original IBM PCs were never intended for the home market, they were built for small businesses that couldn't afford to drop in excess of $30,000 for a mainframe. They had monochrome displays and...

    No. Blu-Ray uses uncompressed sound and has more storage space on the disc. And unfortunately, most
    of the older movies didnít get a digital remaster.
