Wait .. I know! ... Matrox is finally bringing out a real GAMING CARD! Given their visual quality in 2D it would be awesome if they did.

No chance. I worked for Matrox and they've done nothing but go downhill for years. They'll remain in fringe territory until they're bought out someday - probably just for the patents they hold.

You know what GPU related thing I want that is not a GPU itself? I want to have my desktop run programs for my notebook in my home. I have forgotten what it is called exactly, but it is like using a thin client, except for gaming.

*Edit
And it needs to be fully local, no internet required.

it's a little bit what they want to do with virtual GPU, they want to install big GPU in a server so you can run apps in smart phones or client or in your case a laptop.

I believe this is doable... If it can be done by internet it can be done even better over local networks, there has to be some sort of programs that can do this.

Confused....intrigued....interested....curious.... Sky you taunt us. Can't wait to know what it is. Price drops? Manufacturing issues or manufacturing price drops? So many possibilities.

So many possibilities. Let's just say it is two items that work together to make a set of products all that much more appealing.
