PSX 2 Emotion Engine Overview
In case you're not aware, the finest thing you can strap to your TV is Sony's new Playstation 2. (Released this month in Japan, expect to see it stateside sometime this fall.) ARS Technica (an excellent tech evaluation site) has an in-depth look at the Emotion Engine, the incredible heart of this superior machine. Not really a general purpose CPU, the Emotion Engine is a rare thing of innovation and beauty designed for one purpose: the 3D game. Have a look.
