For me personally, the only time I've ever felt that there wasn't enough RAM was in the first iPad. Other than that it has never been an issue. That said, I'm one who's a bit OCD about having too...

Dave, My numbers are perf/mm2, not perf/W. There are plenty of site who do the latter already, such as this one: http://www.techpowerup.com/mobile/reviews/NVIDIA/GeForce_GTX_750_Ti/26.html

A number of review sites list relative perf, perf/W, perf/$, but not perf/mm2. I wanted to see how that changes for different GPUs.

I started with the 'Indices de performances' for various...

I'm afraid I really don't get it. (I know Ibiza was an AMD chip at some point, but, surprisingly, even google doesn't help me out.)

It's fun to speculate:
- 256 bits instead of 384
- Full chip performance similar to R280X? a
- No/low perf DP FP? Would this bring the area down to ~300mm2?
- Power a bit better than a GTX770?
-...

Ok, fair enough.

Now don't get me wrong: I don't think power consumption is a deciding factor for a consumer who's in the market of a Tonga class GPU. I wouldn't personally wouldn't care as long...

Yeah, ambiguous sentence: Nvidia only doing improving architecture and not process. I've made my comment more clear.

Why wouldn't it? I doubt it will be exactly the same, but even if it goes down a little, it will still be ways ahead.

Does it matter what they were aimed at? The reality is: that's what they will be competing against. And it looks like it's going to be a very unfair fight. There are rumors of the existence of a...

A bit above, a bit below: details. The problem is that it won't come anywhere close to Maxwell.

Conclusion: they're now more or less at par with Kepler in terms of MC efficiency. A bit more area efficient in terms of theoretical FLOPS/mm2. And similar in power. My expectations were that they'd...

You talk about 10 years in the future. And about 1TFLOPS being a big deal. Let's look 7 years in the past, and I see a GT200 breaking the 1TFLOPS barrier. On a worse process. Without full custom...

Your analogy would work better if CPU and GPU were actual unifying, as in the merging of units of your GPU example. But that's currently just not the case. Only the communication between them is...
