Hi Georgi,

By using the direct required bandwidth(bw / 1000) values, it will not
guarantee
that all the NOC clocks are running in the same voltage corner as
required,
which is very crucial for power concern devices like Mobiles etc.
Also, it will not guarantee that the value passed is in proper Clock
Plans domain
there by effecting the requested Bandwidth.
I think, you already aware of these consequences on using direct
bandwidth values for
RPMh based devices.

The value the we passed in DT will make sure that all the NOC clocks
between the end points
are running in the same voltage corners as required and also it will
guarantee that
the requested BW's for the clients are obtained.

Hence the reason for passing the predefined bandwidth values in DT.

Thanks and Regards,
Pradeep
