Is there much to be excited about in PC gaming these days?
Multi GPU chips will give way to multi-core CPU chips.. there's no real reason to have two physical CPUS..
Of course it's a natural, if lame evolution of the DUAL graphics card compromise..
However, I belive if innovation was truly run by people who give a crap about moore's law and all that would have transitioned DIRECTLY to multi-core GPU graphic solutions and not bothered with more physical hardware and build GPU's that are maybe almost twice the physical size, but have multi-core built-in! If you remember, some graphics card GPUs were 2.5" and eventually shrunk down.. but there's no reason why we can't go back to physically bigger chips for now and then shrink the process in bi-yearly revisions.
Lately, this was AMD's market to lose... I also had an Nvidia (now Intel) card back in the 90s...what I didn't like was their "BETA" drivers were also much more of a hassle than ATI(amd's) because end-users had a vested interest in seeing that things went right.. consumer's were on their side... nobody wants to do development work for Intel.. that bloated greedy company with their overpriced products and market manipulation (prices, and found guilty by the EU for pushing AMD's products out of the market with kickbacks).
That said, AMD dropped the ball in 2010 in CPU's so my system is Intel i5-750 2.66ghz quad core... I'm hoping AMD will have a good solution when I'm ready to upgrade, but the way things look they might not even be around 2-5 years from now, lol...
