Video: PlayStation 3's XDR RAM Explained

309w ago - At the heart of Sony Computer Entertainment's breakthrough PLAYSTATION 3 system is the Cell Broadband Engine (Cell BE) processor. The Cell BE is a multi-core processor employing a PowerPC processor element (PPE) and seven synergistic processor elements (SPE) to provide supercomputer capability in a home computer entertainment system. The Cell BE is capable of 218 GFlops performance.

PS3 as we all know is powered by 256mb of GDDR3 RAM and 256mb of XDR at ultrafast speed of 3.2ghz. The XDR RAM has a very low latency and is more efficient than contemporary PC RAMs.

So what exactly is XDR RAM and why is it superior to conventional PC RAM?

Preview: Killzone 2 for PlayStation 3

310w ago - What's the game about? By now you should be nicely familiar with Sony's long awaited first-person shooter for the PS3. It's been the highlight of several of the company's E3 press conferences, and has been steadily gaining hype as we've seen its cinematic visuals nearing the experience Guerrilla set out to achieve in the incredible target video released early on.

What's new for Games Convention? At E3 last month, Sony gave a rundown of all the multiplayer options that Killzone 2 will support -- a pretty darn substantial offering. At the Leipzig Games Convention, Sony allowed us to actually get our hands-on the multiplayer game. Sony also confirmed that there will be AI bot support, allowing you to include bots in multiplayer games for when there's not enough human players in a match; according to Sony, they'll mimic human behavior so well it'll be hard to realize the difference. Unfortunately, we didn't get to see them in action to judge this for ourselves.

What's our take? Up until now I'd viewed Killzone 2 primarily as a single player experience -- it's always just struck me as a very cinematic FPS, making an emphasis on story and staged events. Having played it for a good while at Leipzig, I'm convinced the multiplayer is getting just as much attention -- Killzone 2's multiplayer should be able to hang...
