I think the point is, the GPU is more than sufficient for all games that are currently available.
Is it possible that someone will develop a game that requires a better GPU in the future? Of course, but right now, I can play almost every game on my original Droid, that means there is nothing out there that's demanding a high end GPU.
Developers aren't making games that require high end GPU's OC'd to 500mhz, and for good reason, they want to sell the most amount of apps that they can.
The way you do that is by making the game playable on as many phones as possible, this makes the "old GPU" argument invalid.
If it's not needed, all it's doing is using more of your battery.
Which is an older gpu? The one on the Original Droid or the one on the G-Nex? I don't play too many games on my droid. The only games that give me a problem is Zynga poker which gets the phone super hot and kills the battery in about three seconds. And the other one is Stardunk. An awesome game but it gets hot and restarts the phone all on its own. I for one am not concerned about the gpu. I think G-Nex will have no problems with these games.

I'm not a Samsung fan, but I hope it will be a great phone. I have a bad feeling that when it is released it will be trashed by the reviewers and deemed a failure like every phone has for a while now.
No phone will ever be good enough to please most of the users as I think we expect way to much out of these devices.
