I would normally also talk about Intel but they rarely bottleneck a game nowadays and they are generally better than AMD and NVIDIA at what they do, mainly because of their own Foundries, not sure if it's also raw ability.

But isn't the GPU area a bit stagnated lately? NVIDIA, who is arguably the better of the two lately (last few months only) whines that they can't go to ~22nm easily. I know, they don't have their own fabs but the problem remains regardness. It takes ages nowadays to progress technology.

And it's discouraging that at least Intel is doing SOMETHING with their own fabs, even if it's often little - look at the Overclocking Fiasco of 4770k. NVIDIA/AMD seem to be stagnated back to what they are for years.

e.g. "Add a flimsy extra CPU to avoid the main CPU"? Come on, even if it does something, it's barely a 'GPU advancement', it's about the general circuity of the machine. And even if it does something every student of basic computing knows it's a workaround that once again dips into the 'multicore savior'. Sure, multiprocessing is an excellent idea but we already overdo it. CPU cores are often 4 or more and GPUs are already massively multicore by inception. Multicoring the computing world even more is barely progress from here onwards.

Damn transistor, why aren't you shrinking as fast as you used to? I hope Graphene does Something..
