And where is your argument?

He said, "you will drain your battery", you said "the cpu uses 100% anyway", now you say "... when gaming". So, now i am watching a movie with 20% cpu instead of 100% and do not thing about your games. I can see the credits, while your tablet already shut down.

I always think "what a waste" about dedicated hardware. A decoding module for ONE codec in your CPU? A special device for bitcoin calculations? In the future it (or its part) is just trash, when all people are using newer codecs and bitcoin is replaced by something else.
