Basic performances of the acousto-optical cells, which can be potentially involved into creating a novel triple-product acousto-optical processor for modern astrophysical applications, are under estimation. The main attention is paid to the time-bandwidth product, because just this parameter can be taken as the most general one for the characterization of performance data inherent in each individual cell. Functional capabilities peculiar to the cells operating over either normal or anomalous light scattering regime are under consideration. Evidently, the anomalous regime of light scattering promises better results. Both the theoretical estimations and the experimental data obtained for a large-aperture acousto-optical cell based on a tellurium dioxide crystal, exploiting the anomalous light scattering, gives the time-bandwidth product equal to about 4000 .
