Kenton, The "any thoughts" was really aimed at nominations around the companies with best-in-class GPU + CPU + parallel compilation..... As to your luke-warm response to Marvell's announcement; I take your point. When the story broke I sent 11 questions concerning the quad-core ARM to Marvell. They said they would get back to me.

Maybe you guys are considering the wrong target. Maybe Marvell's four-ARM smash is aimed at IBM and replacing the Cell processor in the Sony Playstation? There have been rumors that Cell processor is being designed out of the PS4 in favor of a more mainstream multiprocessor. Well this fits the socket in those respects and Marvell has indicated it is for "high-volume gaming applications." Of course the graphics and the interactivity is likely to be key to the success of any future gaming machine and so we should probably look to the supplier with the best GPU + CPU + Parallel processing compilation solution. Any thoughts?

How long before ARM starts to supplant Intel/AMD in domestic PCs?
