Again, you ignore that all that SRAM is built of those blocks. So while its not perfectly accurate for built SRAM cells, it's also not like the SRAM is unaccounted for here. If you want a single simple number, this is not a bad way to get it.

Its the best we've got.

SRAM blocks are built of these logic features. And the disclaimer has fairly good reasoning. The building blocks for SRAM are probably a better choice than SRAM cells for trying to have a universal metric. Its not perfect, but nothing is.

SRAM is made of the NAND gates so vOv

The equation favours SRAM though?

Well duh, it can yield, performs highly, and is very efficient. Being a bit lesser in theoretical density doesn't mean much when 10nm can't do all of the above. Also if you look at the densest SoC's made on 7nm, they're surprisingly close to the Intel metric.

I'm sorry for your loss :(

I've had a good talk with about it, and honestly it's a pretty good metric. Nothing is perfect but I wouldn't mind the industry transitioning to it.

Literally the last problem on Intel's long list

Hawaii was smaller than the competition. And there was a long while before Hawaii that didn't have large dies.

Architecturally? Plenty of times. AMD kinda got turned off from doing big dies for a long while.

That would be a way to secure the halo. Whether or not they do that is still up for debate.

Anyone who knows what's coming. Watt for watt, NVIDIA will lose. Their only chance for not losing the halo is if AMD doesn't bother pushing into housefire territories and instead chooses to have same performance with lower power.

Nothing costlier than losing the halo for NVIDIA.

Even then it had a max board power of 250W lol

This was contingent on NVIDIA not being dumb enough to stay on 8nm vs RDNA2. Instead they're pushing power envelopes super high.

10nm failed, but 7 will work! 7 failed, but 5 will work! 5 failed, but 3 will work! Can you first stop the trainwreck before you start building new rails.

If it can have halo without being housefire then sure.

As long as its available on launch and gets sent to reviewers, then sure. It needs to be there from the first reviews.
