I would see hole new mother board configuration and communications system. There would be a dedicated socket for a processor designed to be used in massively parrallel calculations (wich could be multi core), such as graphics, physics, foldings, etc... There also be expansion slots for GDDR memory. This would make for a verry customizable, scalable, evolutive, optimized and cost effective set-up. We all know that this will never happen, but I think it would be a nice thing to have. The end user would ultimatly be the winner here, being abble to choose an optimised set-up according to his specidic budget and usage. I don't think that Nvidia and ATI would use the same sockets, this would lead to problems leaving the end user brand dependant.
Wow that was a heck of a brain bubble!!
