Mercury plans Cell-based accelerator card
Cell supplies various software tools to let customers make use of the board, and also sells it in a workstation running Windows or Linux on dual Advanced Micro Devices Opteron processors. The board itself also can run Yellow Dog Linux. IBM, Toshiba and Sony co-developed the Cell processor, which is the heart of the forthcoming Sony Playstation 3 game console.
