GoldFire will be used just for getting fused data. And it is the duty of application processor to analyse and communicate over Internet. If we add into consideration the mobility we have to think about power saving techniques.

Oh, there are things in the world with internet connection, which need a lot of computation power. ;-) But you are right, for many (maybe most) devices 16 or even 8 bit would be absolutely enough.
