Could we maybe see a Linux or Android based game console in the near
future?  Marvell has a new triple-core ARM SoC that can deliver 200
MT/s (Million Triangles per Second).  That's only 50 MT/s less than
what the Sony Playstation 3 is capable of pushing.  In comparison the
Nvidia Tegra 2 SoC which has an on-chip Geforce GPU can only move
around 90 MT/s.  The Apple A4 is "rumored" to only be able to do 24
MT/s.

So, is this SoC a game changer or what?
