So, your chip-busting 16MiB on-chip ultra-wide, 30-port cache, from
which you will read 30X more data than I read from external GDDR5 in
the same time... will consume less than 0.1W?  I want some of that
magic memory!  And whatever you're smoking!

I just deleted all my power guestimates that show this is dream-land.
 If you can't figure this out on your own, I'm done talking about it.
