Just repeats what I already said. Half clock L2, low power, no low latency.

Small cores are usually not designed to have low latency. For example, look at the half clock L2 of Cat which actually increases latency. Small core are made for low power or high area/power...

Don't forget their is a >30% difference in clocks. It's not just about shaders. ;)

Low latency? The low latency vs high throughput aspect is solved by HSA. What you posted looks more like low power vs high performance on a single core. Or in other words, it's big.LITTLE at core...

Not really. Data caches, decoders, register files, execution units, etc. There are enough dedicated resources.

No, they don't have to deactivate the whole module. It just depends on the location of the defect (shared vs dedicated resource). You also have to keep in mind that a separate core needs less area....

Because Tonga/GCN has more transistors which don't directly translate to FPS (better computing/ISA support, HSA, DSP, etc).

No. You still can deactivate just one "core" of every module and sell it at least as 4C. It's practically the same as Intel's i5.

Actually I would be glad if your "things" could be discussed. But they can't be discussed because they don't make much sense. All I read from you is, CMT == bad, SMT == good. And you permanently try...

How can you abandon a shared FPU but still sharing it via SMT? Your statements make absolutely no sense.

I think Tonga still has a lot room for improvements. Just take a look at FirePro W7100. It's basically the same as R9 285, but w/ 8 GB VRAM and no turbo. It's specified with less than 150W maximum...

No. Die size is only one factor of the cost formula. Intel's 22nm FinFET process is a lot more expensive per mm˛ than Glofo's 28nm bulk process.

What did you expect from the user starting this thread? ;)

The CPU in the consoles are strong enough for 1080p and more. Resolution is mostly GPU bound. This is just marketing BS from UBISoft.
