The size and power consumption of ARMs means that stuffing fifty to one hundred plus a suitable GPU in a SOC the size of an existing intel socket and a 70W TDP should make sense for most use cases.

Interestingly I'm seeing grumbles that ARM's licensing fees are too high. Perhaps MIPS time has come.
