So you can, you can take your GPU, and it can do a heavy workload. But if something goes wrong, it has to throttle down and still be able to deliver telco services. So this power environment ratio that you'll see in the edge compute nodes, whether they're on a cell tower or in a small data center, fibered into different towers. It's going to be a really interesting ratio of power and cooling--and electricity, for that matter. So I guess it's a brand new world, and I think we'll see new configurations come up over the next ten years to really address that density that will have to show up in those data centers.
