Toshiba demonstrated the power of the new cell processor that is going into the Playstation 3 console recently.  It decoded 48 standard defiinition TV format MPEG-2 streams and then projected them on a 1920x1080 display divided into 8x6 cells each with a different video stream. 

In the demonstration, Toshiba used an operating system environment that it had developed to increase efficiency in the Cell software development. One of this environment's key features is that application software developers can program software without concerning about what threads will be allotted to what SPEs, because the environment has a function to automatically schedule software to SPEs.
