How about splitting it further? Graphic card with several dedicated chips for some unique actions?
Modern GPUs already have many cores already, some even >1000. They can be used for many different things, not just graphics, but also physics calculations or other stuff which can benefit from massive parallelism.
Computers are so extremely complex today compared to what they were back in the early 80s where they could build a discrete working prototype of an Amiga which would fit on a single table. Back then it was possible for one person to know the details of all parts of computer where today that would be impossible. I think that does make a big difference as today it requires the design to be more modular with standardized interfaces.
