Another CPU as GPU

Why dont the graphics card companys release a graphics card that runs at 1ghz+. Is it because the x86 architecture wont do graphics? the PCI-E bus runs at 4gb\\s, surely thats enough. It may not be cost effective but for the 'professional' or 'gamer' im sure it would sell.

slap me if im being stupid, lol
