All processors can handle gfx 'instructions' traditionally the only problem is the bus between graphics card and GPU and all that API s*** between them.
Both x360 and ps3 do not have that problem.

Also SPUs are used for a lot more than just post processing, including lighting in tiled deferred rendering and so on. (Uncharted2, Battlefield3..)
This requires careful planning though so it is not seen in every title, but it really has given a lot of possibilities for developers.
RSX simply is not that good GPU when comparing to almost anything at the time of release, it simply has numerous performance pitfalls.
