    Probably missed it somewhere in the mountain of docs, but is the EIB ring bus clocked at the same speed as the CELL? Can't seem to find confirmation on this...

    Ta!

    AFAIK it's clocked at half the main clock

    You don't have a reference/link to that info? Thanks again...

    Ah, thought I'd read it before!

    That would be with 4 rings, 64 Bytes/cycle. I guess that is a sustained figure while the claimed 96 Bytes/cycle would be a burst rate below,
