Processors and graphics cards have long been two completely different monsters that have each had their own respective duties, never switching sides.  As with all electronics, stand alone parts are often integrated into one as technology progresses and becomes smaller.  For years, many computer nerds have dreamed of the day when the CPU and GPU can become one, sharing roles, and making your scream machine all the faster, while also being smaller and more efficient.  Nvidia’s GT3xx series cards could be just that and is even been called a cGPU.  A cGPU because it will start to march into Intels territory in the whole processor arena.  Being hailed as the “first truly new architecture since SIMD (Single-Instruction Multiple Data)”, the architecture changes coming with the 3xx series could be the prelude (as in one to two generations away from the full blown thing) to the CPU/GPU combo we have been waiting for.  While another several years seems like an eternity, and to many techno people really is, it is but a drop in the bucket to the last thirty years or so of computer evolution.  Computers, computer components, and computer performance are on the brink of exploding exponentially in terms of speed, efficiency, and power.
