    Well if the APU is sharing the RAM with the main system RAM, which we would assume it is in this case, then 16GB would be very useful for spooling textures etc and local caching whilst the game is running. Would make graphic updates a lot more fluid, especially if coupled with an SSD. However, we have to hope that a faster Blu-ray drive is included, it's just too damn slow at the moment and won't hold up in the future.

    All depends on the APU caches and quality of the northbridge to avoid latency issues. If the northbridge is shit it won't matter how much RAM it has. More doesn't always mean better in this case. I feared the reality of them deciding on an APU for the build, but realistically, the lack of a seperate video card would allow a little extra room for proper cooling this time around, and thats a plus.

    Having a super duper powerful console isn't as great as you might think. Remember how people kept going on about how the PS3 is technically much more powerful than the 360? (let's not even talk about the Wii.) It ended up not making much of a difference because developers had such a hard time working out how to harness all that supposedly untapped power. If either one of them comes out with another stupidly powerful console we might be back to square one!
