With Torrenza, AMD has designed what it calls an open architecture, based on the next wave of Opteron processors, which allow what AMD calls "Accelerators." Using the add-in accelerators, a system will be capable of peforming specialized calculations similar in fashion to the way we use GPUs today.
Hmm, sounds like the perfect candidate for a PPU. It's too bad it's on an Opteron though, because chances are whatever additions are there, they will not likely affect gaming.
