A quick bite of the specs:
  • Custom IBM PowerPC-based CPU
    • Three symmetrical cores running at 3.2 GHz each
    • Two hardware threads per core; six hardware threads total
    • VMX-128 vector unit per core; three total
    • 128 VMX-128 registers per hardware thread
    • 1 MB L2 cache
  • Custom ATI Graphics Processor
    • 500MHz processor
    • 10 MB of embedded DRAM
    • 48-way parallel floating-point dynamically scheduled shader pipelines
    • Unified shader architecture
There's an official website here and a huge thread in our Other Toys forum, with today's stuff starting about here.
