Right. It's not like it's going to change in the course of the next year, but I'd say withing the next 5 years we're going to start seeing some interesting changes to computer architecture.
It would be cool, highly unlikely, but cool nonetheless, to see some nVidia CPU's.
I must say that I find it funny how for a moment (say about 3 years ago or so) everything seemed to be pointing to the creation of independent process-specific processors, such as physX and x-fi sound cards, even network cards with their own processors.
