As a for-example, there was a new product I was working on over the summer, with an exciting new topology (but not as exciting as what's coming in 2016). There were at least a dozen major design decisions that would affect its performance. The temptation, of course, is to take the high road in all cases. But when you're looking at a (very) cost-constrained product, with some serious limitations on space and heat, there are tradeoffs that have to be made. I took the high road in a couple of those cases, and ended up with a fairly insane level of performance for the product. Could it have been even better? Yes, at 3x the cost and in 6x the space. But that wasn't in the cards.
(And, I think you'll see that new product before the end if the year)
Limitations on space and heat? Class-A somethingrather then, and space constraint? Asgard size or smaller probably. [[serious]] cost constraint, so.. Asgard, or even Magni-type thing.
What is it? Who cares! I just can't wait to read the FAQ!
