NVIDIA predicts that the performance of mobile graphics processors will surpass the quality of Xbox 360 by 2014.

A graph given to AnandTech shows NVIDIA's predictions for PC, console and mobile GPUs over the next few years.

While the respective trajectories are pretty much what you'd expect, it's notable that NVIDIA expects mobile graphics to improve at a steeper rate than the other two mediums.

nvdia graph tweak -

In the graph above, the "Console" line is representative of graphics achieved by the first Xbox and Xbox 360.

PS3 performance isn't taken into account.

Can you imagine your mobile being more powerful than an Xbox 360 in two years?

I'm sure they can, It just wouldn't be profitable. I imagine Dell are just fine with people buying a new laptop every 3 years.

True, I suppose consoles were always lagging a bit behind PC until this generation.

And yet they still cant make laptops fully upgradeable ;)

Which is better than the 40+ years consoles have taken to get to that point! ;)

I've had this feeling that tablets are going to overtake laptops for quite some time now and I'm guessing that "mobile" could mean tablets. So, I'm not really surprised at this prediction. As soon as the adobe suite runs on a tablet, then my laptop use is likely to plummet.
