Abstract


Numerical computations in science and engineering require high memory bandwidth and computational power. The Cell Broadband Engine Architecture (CBEA), a heterogeneous multicore architecture, promises both. We evaluated the potential of the CBEA for numerical codes in the areas image processing, computational fluid dynamics, and molecular dynamics. We present results and derive the strengths and challenges for using this novel architecture.
