Comparing general purpose, almost-lego, PC hardware to specialized purpose-built hardware is an apples to oranges situation.

The anxiety here is clear: implications for PC gaming. But it's just not relevant.

I'm really interested to see how an APU-like design performs when not burdened by legacy issue like the PC is. Consoles have never been about the most powerful hardware possible, but about elegant design and the best performance for the desired price point.

For this coming generation, price is a bigger consideration that ever -- not just from a consumer perspective, but also from the perspective of manufacturers and developers.

PC gaming has its own issues that shouldn't be part of this discussion.
