How many FLOPS does a PS3 do ? Is Wikipedia right ?

According to Wikipedia the RSX does 400.4GFLOPS and the Cell does 25.6GFLOP each SPE. So the PS3 has 1 PPE and uses 6 SPE's for games so 25.6 * 7 = 179.2. So RSX + Cell = 579.6GFLOPS. So is Wikipedia correct. If yes then the PS3 does 579.6GLOPS ? Interesting because average PC GPU's do more then that these days. But is this correct or is Wikipedia BS.

Some well informed and relevant answers please.

Thanks.

    If your nerdy enough to ask this question, then your nerdy enough to know this probably is the proper forum for a question like that.

    And its no secret that consoles do not come close PC's processing power. That's common knowledgee, so what point are you trying to make?

    What does it matter? If you can afford a high end gaming PC then get one. Otherwise get a PS3.

    Source(s): wikipedia is as reliable as its ever been. take that however you want to take it.
