The amount of interest Apple has demonstrated in controlling their own chipsets makes this sorta inevitable, I'd think.

The iPad Pro (and the new little one!) seem to be just fine with those A-series chips, so those devices do a LOT of computing and I/O functions without a big traditional outside CPU.

I noted years ago that with the whole "modular" approach could lead to someday our just buying and hanging "sub-boxes" off the main buss to take care of boosting performance.

Imagine a future A-15 or A-20 strong enough to run the full blown MacOS. Then maybe the user just piles the GPUs up in order to scale raw computing power for stuff like we need?

Somebody needs a monster CPU for some reason? Hang one on the system and let any program that needs it use it.

I kinda imagined that's what the Grand Central idea was for.

Playing traffic cop for all sorts of I/O stuff?
