Vivado - LUT utilization mis-match between report_utilization and Find results


In some cases, report_utilization reports a smaller number of LUTs than the Find results based on LUT cell type.
In the below example, report_utilization reports 5 LUTs but Find Results returns 9.

Is this expected behavior?


Find Results:


In examples like the above, the mis-match is expected.

The difference is due to LUT-combining.
A count of primitive LUTs (Find Results) does not account for LUT-combining, whereas report_utilization does account for LUT-combining and as a result reports less.
The report_utilization result is the final actual LUT utilization.

In this example, there are 4 pairs of LUT4 which are combined into LUT6, so report_utilization reports 4+1=5 LUTs.
The LUTs that are optimized with LUT-combining have a "SOFT_HLUTNM" property.
