Today's GPUs are connected to x86-based CPUs through the PCI Express (PCIe) interface, which limits the GPU's ability to access the CPU memory system and is four- to five-times slower than typical CPU memory systems.
In addition, a reliance on soft-translation opens up a world of finger pointing, as developers will inevitably find that their applications are in some way less optimized for Crusoe than for standard x86-based CPUs. Other problems may crop up at the OS level, if users find software incompatibilities with Windows.
