Add support for PS3
|Reported by:||mccall||Owned by:||nobody|
|Has a Patch:||no||Platform:||PowerPC|
Description (last modified by )
PowerPC support should arrive after R1, the PS3 could be an ideal target for Haiku due to its multi-threaded architecture, ie. translators and libraries could be optimized to use the Cell, giving the whole OS and applications that use the optimized components a performance boost.
Areas that need looking into are:
- How does the boot process work
- What devices are presented to an OS
- What components of Haiku can be optimized to use the Cell BBE's SPU's
- Is the memory layout to restrictive to make a port whorthwile
Note to anyone reading this - don't get excited - this isn't someone working on a PS3 port. Its not news. Nothing may come out of this.
