That video is very short sighted and doesn't really show any understanding of anything we have around us.
You know? mmmm modular system that if you are unhappy with the speed or the memory, you can upgrade them... mmmm what do you call those?
Oh thats right! a PC
Now, manufacturers are moving towards 'system on a chip' because it is a system that offers modest speed gains and reduces power consumption. That
really does not mean that separating the technology is a no no. Many phones these days still have separate ram chips, sometimes it is even SD card
interface rather than real ram.
As pointed out already, the concept basically requires a detained specification for the interface and what parts are doing what. Id imagine you
basically have the connector block as a dumb controller that talks to everything, but plays no roll other than routing.
I mean come on? suggesting this is impossible or stupid is quite stupid in itself, especially when things like external gpus exist, which interface
via thunderbolt, USB3 or firewire.
And cars of the 70s and 80s? They never had interchangeable parts. some of them where probably very basic with basically similar designs for a few
major components, meaning a basic swap out was ok but beyond that 'the good old days' where not really anything different to today.
