We all know what Cerny said. That's the issue. You constantly posting what he said doesn't change the ambiguity in his statements. "It spends of its time at that frequency". Well that means it spends some of its time not at that frequency. Then he give an example, "To reduce power by 10% it only takes a of percent reduction in frequency." Is 10% the minimum? Can it go to 15%? I guess you're interpreting "a couple of percent" to mean 2%, because a 3% drop takes into 9TF territory, and we can't have that. If the frequency drop is such a minuscule amount and won't effect performance why even mention it? Now the narrative has been set. When PS5 is released and the pixel counters get a hold of it. Any deviation in performance is going to blamed on a down clock here and there.
