    I just quoted some things from the interwebs. How can one be really sure of anything written there? ;-)

    Yes, that's how I read it too.

    Yes, no implications to the opposite. I was just referring to you stating that "all current processors offering this feature have horrible GPU performance". So I think this new Xenon version (or 'XCGPU' how it's called) seems to be a processor offering this feature while *not* having horrible GPU performance. But as I said, unfortunately not available outside Microsoft.

    I don't know if today there really would be a need to upgrade from an R500/R600 hybrid like the Xenos GPU yet.
