You are incorrect with the "Consoles have ALWAYS been behind PC's when it comes to GPU's." For example, 360 was released on November 2005 with a GPU equivalent to a X1800XT, which was released on Oct 2005 on the PC. On top of that, Xenos had unified shader, which was introduced with the R600 as early as mid-2007. Hardly behind. If anything, it was ahead.
