    It is 8 x86-x64 Cores and 8 ARM x64 cores.

    I've read twilight fan fiction that's more believable than this.

    The little part must have its own VRM to make sense, a big and heavy 8-16 phase VRM will be way outside its peak efficiency with only 1 phase running, but it still needs to be able to deliver 300W for the strong cores.
    I am already running at 1-2W per core idle on my first gen Ryzen and i am guessing the mobile 4000 series is at ½-1W per core, so what is there left to gain compared to what is already possible?

    My reply was not an counter argument to yours.

    I totally agree, but I was thinking more of my own needs, not the needs of Windows users :D

    To what point? I wouldn't expect to save but like $10 a year in electricity and that's being optimistic. In anything that runs off battery Im on board it makes since but everything else its a sacrifice of a lot of performance for a little power savings. I still think this big.LITTLE is going to turn out for laptop chips only, if it is true at all.

    Is there some reason people aren't reading my post properly? I said I don't think it's that great of an idea for desktops.
