What they need to do is re-enter the SoC business. It sucks that they sold off Imageon to Qualcomm long ago.

It will matter for all of us people who also can notice the difference between 30 and 60+ fps... because any anomaly that can be sensed ruins the experience if you're used to play with zero latency super high framerate for years and then you're stuck in front of a 30fps higher latency game. People are gonna notice it...

I'll notice. I just wont care. I am playing on a tablet. Convenience. If I really wanted to play with performance I would go to my desktop. If I am on the bus and just want to pass the time with some dirt 3... I think this will work just fine.
