    Interesting idea but I will await actual testing to see what the benefits will be. BTW para. 2 says "CPU and CPU", I assume one of these should say GPU

    From their previous descriptions of the PS4 architecture I'm guessing so yes - I don't they've talked about it in such detail before though... It's nice to see that they'll be bring the technology to the desktop. Should make it easier for cross platform development, to an extent I guess...
