So my “worst case NVIDIA fixes it” is off by quite a bit. NVIDIA goes to hardware scheduler in future gen is the fix?
i don't think so. the software scheduler with it's tile-based rendering approach was/is pure genius and probably the main reason nvidia had much better TFLOP efficiency vs GCN.
without it nvidia would have real problems to feed that monstrous amounts of cudacores they have in Ampere and we are expecting for their next archs.
as i see it the downsides are somewhat niché without any big impact for most use-cases
