Let's just take that wavefront of 64 pixels, organized in some kind of rectangular fashion. If you use RGB & Alpha, that's 4 bytes per pixel or 256 bytes. A memory atom is 32 bytes. With delta-coding...

Most gamers would run away screaming if such a game would require just the slightest amount of interaction due to the lag and the blur.

If the data has to be read and written at random, then it can only be BW compression, not data compression, I would think?

What I mean is: if you're compression sectors of data, the start address...

It is according to this Anandtech review: http://www.anandtech.com/show/6994/nvidia-geforce-gtx-770-review . Whether or not that's the actual power consumption is something else.

I meant the first part, about the slides only being about 285 and not the rest of the product line. It's clear that 285 is not competing against a 970.

Anyway, it's not a big deal. I just wonder...

You have a bit of a point if the GTX970/980 doesn't undercut AMD in Japan in price. I don't know if it does.


The last 3 weeks, AMD has been very efficient at making themselves look like a...

I thought wccftech was making this up, but the slides seem to be real. It's sad how AMD's PR has gone truly off the rails. As if there's nobody sane left to say 'guys, are you sure this is a good...

I think it can change to different fixed refresh rates for all. AFAIK that's also what laptops do to save power. But they probably can't change the frame time continuously for each and every frame.

A 20nm shrink would not bring costs down mid-term. And performance may not be significantly faster either. What'd be the point of it?

Maybe he meant that a 6 core is larger than 4 core? But it would be a relatively marginal increase anyway.
