Well the jumps in raw processing power for pcs in the past decades brought about the possibility of making powerful processors the size of a toenail. If Nvidia and the likes weren't contenting with that huge market and they came to bring about new relevant innovation to pc gaming that might lead the leap forward. this said devs are already not using the full power of current hardware.. so manufacturers cant really be blamed... Physx anyone? Well it's a period of maturity instead of innovation and it's q good thing for developers. People who dont buy hardware have a better budget and they have more time to produce polished products. Actually the last game that I remember as potentially pushing techmology was Rage as a card with more than 1k in ram was necessary to get a decent resolution ( in bestcase) and it was received by fans with shotgun shells. So I suppose a golden age of innovation cannot be dictated. As far as tablets go I wouldnt buy one to play games.. I have big fingers and they tend to hide what happens on screen. I wouldnt mind a tablet used as a pc peripheral though. Maybe a small one that replaces the numpad on the keyboard. Maybe devs will start implementing secondary touch interfaces for their games but I hope it's not restricted to win8 rigs.
