Gone are the hardware concerns of A, yet with B, you control the application.
Is it that kind of a construction when to emphasize a term you put it in the beginning of the sentence and put the verb after it?
So the normal sentence would look:
The hardware concerns of A are gone, yet, with B, you control the application.
That is an old-fashioned literary use which you are unlikely to encounter in contemporary written English, much less conversation. It does emphasize the gone; but this is not because it is first but because it is so oddly placed.
Other things being equal, the strongest position in any clause is the final one, not the first, because in the simplest sentences this is where “new” information normally falls.
