[Tweaktown]AMD Hawaii-based GPU has unused streaming processors available

It looks like there is some untapped performance in the awesome AMD Hawaii-based GPUs, which is the silicon behind its flagship GPU, the Radeon R9 290X. The die shot below shows off a GPU which features as many as 48 CUs, which would see some 3072 stream processors (SPs).

This would reflect to consumers as a new Radeon R9 290X, with 10% more performance, which would nice

Wasn't this shown to be false in the other thread?

Although 2816 is an awfully weird number for them to stop at.

Don't pretty much all of the top end GPU's leave some for manufacturing defects.

Heck, even the PS3, which had 7 SPE's, actually had an 8th (unused to account for manufacturing defects)

Once the manufacturing process matures, we could see a R290X "Ti" equivalent right?
