IBM Judging by details revealed in a chip conference agenda, the clock frequency race isn't over yet. IBM's Power6 processor will be able to exceed 5 gigahertz in a high-performance mode, and the second-generation Cell Broadband Engine processor from IBM, Sony and Toshiba will run at 6GHz, according to the program for the International Solid State Circuits Conference that begins February 11 in San Francisco.

This table of consumptions comes from a good source (appears in IBM docs) but only refers to an SPU, one of the nine cores of a Cell.
I think one Cell running at 3.2 Ghz is consuming less than 80 Watts.
