Yes, but the final product has that included in the design parameters. You don't need to say it as if it's an independent property. Using SS8, a certain design is possible and using N4 another one is. The final design is what matters. Shaders, memory, power, frequency & price . SS8, N4, N3, N6, N7, SS5, who cares?SS8 definitely limited the performance of Ampere. Power consumption worse, etc.
