Interesting notion considering that they now seem to be doing the DP operations on separate units. Perhaps they would able to do these operations at a higher clock?

When measuring the actual power consumption of the GT240 we found that purely compute bound applications didn't manage to max out the power consumption (50-60 % of max power while reaching near peak GFLOP/s numbers). It was rather the bandwidth bound applications that seemed to put more strain on the memory controllers that were consuming the most power.

Time will tell what the green team manages to do with this product...
