You're not getting it,the overall product strategy is different for both,and that directly translates into the engineering requirements for both,so it doesn't really have anything to do with bad hardware as you're stating.


Fact is,if Fermi didn't beat a single Cypress would be a shock,and we still have yet to see by how much given that it is using 850 million extra transistors,so about a 40% higher transistor budget over cypress,and it would be funny if Fermi's performance advantage was smaller than that
