Hi,

I am thinking of getting a PS3 and I was wondering what the compile speed is like. I work on a project which has a large codebase and we already have a compiling cluster running with Icecream. If the speed is decent I would add the PS3 with a crosscompiler for x86.

Any thoughts?

It's probably not worth it, the PowerPC core is fast, but not significantly faster than other cheaper options. The PS3 is interesting, but really only for investigations in using the streaming processors in the Cell, not as a general purpose machine.
