New PowerVR Chip Means iPhone HD Getting Closer?

We've made no bones about it, TiPb wants us some iPhone HD this June! Looks like the stars are aligning closer and closer to give it to us as well, what with faster 802.11n mobile WiFi chips, and rumors of quad-core cpu's for iPhone 3.0. Now that OpenCL supporting PowerVR graphics core boost might be on the way as well. Says Apple Insider:

Imagination Technologies has quietly slipped out word this week of a new mobile chip known as the PowerVR SGX543. [...] In practice, the technology is powerful enough to push 35 million polygons per second and 1 billion pixels per second and can thus easily drive HD resolution video output, including when 3D is involved.

HD aside, any gamers looking forward to that kind of quad-core, super graphical powered fun?
