[QUOTE=tmc8080;2646136]well, a bit of an error… I meant multi-core GPU’s obviously…
this is possible… I mean, if they’re gonna have two gpu’s running parallel, why wouldn’t a multi-core GPU running parallel not be MORE efficient… down the line…?[/QUOTE]
There’s a been a bunch of zealots harping on about video processing on a generic multi-core CPU for years, and then there’s the cross-over with the GPGPU’s (AMD E350 series / AMD APU series / Intel i3/i5/i7 series 2-3), where a CPU has a low power GPU embedded into the design, which is, of course, relatively low output, and typically is bandwidth limited (due to shared memory bus), and also detail/texture limited (due to shared memory size).
On efficiency … dual core is inherently less efficient, due to collisions/delays on shared busways/memory accesses & etc.
But yes, two (multiple) cores are typically better than a single core, on the proviso that the single core isn’t clocked at double the clock rate of the dual cores.
On the power side, dual cores on a single die is typically more energy efficient than two separate single cores also
