Certainly even the older Cell is much faster than 1Ghz PPC chips.

It's not a case of performance, the SPEs in the CELL are nowhere near as feature rich as the cores in multicore PPC or x86 CPUs. It's a very unsuitable CPU for running a media rich OS that you would want today. Very inflexible in that environment, great for games coding though if you know what you are doing.
