    NVIDIA is such a tease. :)

    Really, I'm sure NVIDIA has good things in store for us, but can they please hurry and release them?

    They have to tease. Otherwise, you'll go out and buy whatever is best right now, instead of waiting (and waiting and waiting) for their new stuff to finally hit. At least with this tease, if you are looking at a system in this specific niche, you might hold off to see what all their self-induced hubbub is about.

    Personally, I think a tightly integrated multicore GPU platform would be great for some of the popular ultramobile computers today. Improved battery life is always welcome by us road warriors :)

    Although we know they are working hard, Nvidia still has nothing concrete to at least do a demo for us.
    I'm going to quote a comment someone made in another place:

    They already have. I lost my hearing overnight (literally) six years ago. Three months ago I underwent Cochlear Implant surgery. My new "hearing" was switched on, the implant array electronically mapped and calibrated all with nVidia GPGPU technology.
    Worked like a charm thanks to those Austrian geezers at Med-El and nVidia I have 85% of my hearing back.

    It's not all about fps
