It may no be completely compatible but it is based on the POWER4 (aka PowerPC 970) and does use the PPC instruction set and machine language: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cell_microprocessor
So any advances in the Cell hardware or software development will most likely also advance the standard PPC line.
