          I have a question about the APUs.


          When we look on the SP/DP Values, we see, that the DP:SP ratio is 1:4 for the complete APU.


          We remember, the iGPU is a VLIW4 GPU, so bestcase in DP:SP should be 1:4, and when i remember right, the DP:SP-Ratio for the Trinity Desktop APUs the APU have 1:16.


          But this is not so important. The CPU normaly have 1:2 not 1:4 DP:SP ratio. How come AMD to this 1:4 ratio?


          Lots of people are very confused about this. Is it possible to explane this more detailed?


          Are there any Turbo-Core effects? And is the iGPU now 1:4 or 1:16 or whatever?
