GPUs are better CPUs than existing CPUs.

Anyway, 80nm CPUs? NFW.

I think it's more of a low-end competition (VIA etc).

A cunning stunt would be to produce a CPU, that works ~as~good~ as regular CPUs - however, if u buy an nVidia gfxcard (which will work with any CPU), a whole bunch of collaborating instructions are able to be tapped that can do some meger jobs a hell of alot quicker.

Tip these jobs towards gaming.. hmmm

U make a regular cpu socket with nVidia stamped on it, but as opposed to just sitting in the cpu holder and away u go, there is a tab that sticks out from between the cpu and the cooler. This tab connects to the gfxcard via a ribbon.... like the sli edge.

The gfxcard acts normally when with Intel/AMD, but with the nVidia CPU - the others have no way of competing until they`ve reverse engineered and stole it. (as will happen)

When they`ve stolen it, u scrap it and use something else u`ve developed thats 50x faster.

hehe
