PC is already epic strong, but how much more powerf could PC get if ram for CPU and gpu are united instead on separated like they are now?

Probably when Direct X is done away with or heavily updated. Microsoft does not seem very keen on doing that right now, or ever though. Maybe we will see OpenGL on GNU/Linux go in this direction when gaming picks up even more on that platform.

It will still need proper support in the APIs though, and it'll probably take some time until the marketshare is big enough for devs to bother

Why would we need unified memory?

In the PC world we call that an integrated graphics chip with shared memory.

Graphics cards already have access to dedicated high speed memory designed for graphics processing.
The CPU already has access to fast memory designed to crunch numbers.

Essentially, it's already perfect.
The communication between the two isn't really that big of a problem either.

Yet consoles exists that can do nearly the same for a fraction the cost.
That $400 ps4 already destroys my $1,200 pc.

I have a GTX 560, i7 3.4ghz, 12gb.

My pc isn't on the same level of PS4.

And bragging about how much more powerful a pc actually is, is rather dumb especially if you paid 3x-4x more.

You paid $1200 for that PC? I'm sorry.

Also, is the PS4 even getting hUMA?
