Intel's Core i7 975 VS PS3 Processor?
If the PS3 processor wins than is there a better processor out there?

PS3 cell processor is capable of handling 9 threads (2 on PPE and 7 on SPE) at 3.2GHz. Core i7-975 Xtreme can handle 8 threads at 3.33GHz. They could be quite comparable in terms of processing horsepower.
It is the core i7-980X that looks better. With 6 cores and Hyperthreading feature, it can handle 12 threads at 3.33 GHz.
