It may not be immediately clear what the XGameStation team offers, but they've been creating tremendous proprietary kit systems for a few years now that help interested hobbyists learn game hardware ins-and-outs and programming ins-and-outs from the ground up. Obviously this hearkens back to the old days when we really knew the architectures of our old 8-bit systems and could really maximize their performance if we were so inclined (and talented). Definitely check these folks and their many offerings out.

Multiprocessing and multicore architectures are the current direction all computing is going. Moore's law has almost reached its limits in size and speed with the silicon process, thus parallel architectures are going to be more and more important.
