I guess that comment is going to be subjective then because I don't even get adding transistors from "adjusting" in that statement.
Well, there's got to be some hardware on there running translation from TEV code into shader language and such. However we take it, my point was that the design is not just R700 - it's been altered at least somewhat at the hardware level.
Of course we are. That's what I'm getting at. No one can draw a proper conclusion with that info.
The point you make here would fit more for the argument of a 320 part than a 160 part IMO. And with the overheating that was also supposedly with a 640 part GPU.
The point I made doesn't support any shader quantity over the other. The only thing that it says, is that for whatever Latte is, it's currently running at the highest clock they could get it while maintaining acceptable yields. I just can't see a 640 ALU part as ever being in the dev kits. It makes no sense of any of the other information we've gotten since.
