    Awesome stuff, hopefully we might get these in phones by June next year when my contract finally runs out.

    As an aside, when are we going to get enlargement links on the pictures in news articles?

    I foresee tablets & hand held gaming devices getting better.
    I'm waiting for a powerful enough, open enough, tablet with good battery life.

    i think this is great news, especially for companies like via. i'm assuming arm stepped up their graphics because amd is trying to target smartphones and they're likely to do a better job if their claims are true

    Actually, I was thinking, "Holy **** they're remaking FF7!" Then I remembered that it is "Midgar" and I got sad.

    :D

    On a side note, that "five times the performance" figure in the article sounds like a nice bit of marketing fluff when you combine it with the statement that they can place up to four on a chip. I'm thinking it's more like "25% faster, but we can give you four of them at the same time."
