Well, *I* read that it's not even remotely comparable to either a  
POWER or a PowerPC core, it just happens to use the same instruction  
set. It's stripped to the bare minimum, for example, it does not do  
out-of-order execution. Or, while a G5 can issue 8 instructions at a  
time, the Cell does only 2. I can't find a good reference right now,  
but a bit is mentioned here


and here
