ROP partition = ROPs + memory controllers + L2 cache
When something increases everything increases by the same amount as long as the GPC is equal. GF100 and GF104 GPCs are different.
You want me to speculate power consumption based on ROP partitions?
GF104 = 2 ROP partitions = 155 W
GF110 = 3 ROP partitions = (155 x3) / 2 = 232 W
Other than silicon increase the only thing that affects power consumption is clock speed which I speculated is going to be the same more or less, and that it won't affect too much: as can be seen on the chart I provided @820 Mhz (quite an OC) the power is 176 W.
your whole mathemetics based on unitary method is not supposed to be used on electricals components.TDP of FULL gf100 is around 204 watts more than gf100.based on your mathematics can you explain why the TDP OF FULL GF100 IS QUITE MORE AS EXPECTED?
