The power of a PlayStation 3

After using my PlayStation 3 for some nice brute forcing, I was impressed by the power it has. The Cell processor on it performs faster then the CPU in my quadcore system. Consider the fact that the PS3 was released in like 2005 and my CPU is just one year old!

After writing a brute forcer on it I decided to try and enjoy the power of the machine in a completely different way... I actually used it the right way and the power was overwhelming! Try and play Assassins Creed on it for example :) The graphics, the physics, the smooth feel of the gameplay, just awesome! Check out some ingame footage, I can't wait for part 2 of this title.

So lately I've mainly been using my PS3 for playing several new bought games... and trust me, a PlayStation 3 is a powerful machine! :D


  1. Ps3 may be powerful, but you are probably not going to get the best performance with it. GPUs are more widespread, cheaper, and more powerful. (in terms of computing power and gaming)

  2. true, but I was only comparing ps3 cpu with my quadcore cpu... bruteforcers aren't even using the GPU of the PS3... although i'm quite sure that GPU won't be as powerful as todays GPU's for PC's.
