An SPE is a Synergistic Processing Element of the Cell Broadband Engine. A cell processor is composed of 8 SPE's and 1 PPE. 1 SPE is used solely for the operating system, while 1 SPE is for redundancy. In all 6 SPE's and the PPE are used in game.
The SPE's and PPE work together by sharing processing loads and also work specifically with the RSX GPU. In all each SPE is basically a CPU in itself, which can perform any task a CPU can, and even some GPU tasks, such as rendering graphics.
