comment Is the transistor count in hardware actual count?
@Dan7119: I understand that they are a unit of measurement but we don't say that a car that has 300 HP has 300 horses in it. I myself believed that the transistor count is actual count, but got into an argument with someone who gave me the HP analogy and said that "a GPU with 4+ billion transistors is like saying a car has 300 HP. It doesn't really have 4+ billion transistors but acts like it does as far as computation power is concerned".
