    I'm well aware of what the PPE/PPU is capable of, and what it's not. The reasons such good PS3 games exist are the GPU and the SPEs/SPUs, not the PPE/PPU.

    You are confusing the SPEs/SPUs with the single (dual-threaded) Power Architecture PPE/PPU.

    ...but the OtherOS-capable PS3 models are.

    > you say PS3 is nothin

    No, I say PS3 is not suitable for MorphOS due to the reasons mentioned.

    I'm not a board designer, so surely won't try making any board, no matter the amount of RAM.
