Is the thermal impedance from a GPU's wafer to the heatsink low enough that you could get close to doubling the clock speed if you halved the duty-cycle (render 50% of the full-TDP framerate).
An assumptions I've made through research is that the TDP (joules per second of thermal dissipation capacity) is highly related to the amount of work a GPU can do per unit time.
This capability at some degree is made apparent by reference to the "boost" modes and thermal dissipation schemes of today's high-power GPUs.
I do realize that this is probably not a linear relationship, but I'm talking very small bursts of work at the higher frequency:
Say a card can render a specific frame in 16ms continuously at its TDP, that's 60fps. I want to instead render that same frame in 8ms and then skip a frame, repeat (or maybe 6ms if I skip 2 frames?)
