And the reason ATI feels the future will be unified is because Microsoft is a Monopoly and will write the Direct X software to support their new partner in crime, not because it's the best way. The Memory architecture on the RSX is also unified, similar to Microsoft and ATI's new offering. Truth be told, ATI is a much weaker, slower (maybe slightly more flexible) GPU.
This is how the article should have read:
"The XBOX 360 will certainly be slower and less powerful than the PS3." Because, let's face it everyone, logic tells us it will be this way.

FWIW, G70 and RSX are from the same parent architecture.

Just thought I'd throw that out there...I'm not stating an actual opinion of one being better than another (I agree with taco), so no flames please. ;)
