A readable article from Samsung to discuss tiling:


I'm honestly pretty shocked that deferred rendering is this beneficial — seems like a LOT of memory overhead (writing everything out to a geometry buffer), wouldn't this be especially problematic given the high cost of memory storage/lookup Kayvon mentioned for mobile devices? Is there a rule of thumb for how rich a scene has to be/how many overlaps on average each pixel needs to have for deferred rendering to make sense?
