Don't forget that PDAF does have one very strong trump card...  It knows whether something is in front of or behind the current focus point.  Otherwise I agree - simplify everything so that the computer has less work to do and it will be faster

I'd say that this trump card has already been overcome. Otherwise, ordinary static CDAF wouldn't be as fast as PDAF. However, PDAF might currently have the edge when it comes to determining in which direction a non-static target is moving and at what speed. Some ideas about how that advantage might be overcome are discussed here:
