It certianly would be nice to know where the A8 tops out clock rate wise. I suspect that Apple keeps the clock rate as low as possible to limit power usage. On to of that I understand that it runs on what is TSMC low power process, I really don't know where that process tops out either. However imagine the same basic architecture running on a performance targeted process and that chip hitting say 2.5 to 3 GHz. It would certainly be an interesting development.Last I...
I don't.It is impressive that Apple has come as far as it has so quickly. However let's be realistic here iPad is basically ATOM class performance right now, that is Intels lowest end processors. As such Apple has a long ways to go yet.I would hope so. However Intel appears to be far more willing to do custom chips and as such they mightnworkmwith Apple to deliver a custom i86 chip for Apples Mac hardware. In the end it really doesn't matter for me but many many...
A production line is a production line, it runs the process it was set up to run.I have no idea what you are talking about here. Apple has moved forward with every iPhone release.Get a grip on yourself! To go to 14 nm Samsung needs to retool its factories for the new processes. That means tearing out the old lines and installing the new to the extent required. You can not run production while doing this.Samsung and Apple are basically partners here. They...
Another process shrink should provide plenty of room for the modem processor. However Apple could buy the IP from Qualcomm or come up with their own. It wouldn't be irrational for them to make an IP purchase here to move forward with integration real fast. Power savings would be a real benefit as would be the space savings. Space is a huge issue in most IOS devices. More space would allow for more flash, sensors or other features.
Seriously guy do you realize how confused the last bit above makes you look. You claim that there are no apps out there to take advanatge of the new hardware yet you are running on an iPad that can't handle most new software. You even acknowledge that it has degraded to being an Evernote platform.I have nothing agian still using hardware for as long as I can, I currently have an iPad 3 and an iPhone 4. However I don't allow self deception here and fully acknowledge...
I don't buy this statement. Some of the games out there for example are using the features ofIPad fairly fully.Software always lags hardware. So new features and performance takes time to exploit. However apps are already taking advantage of new hardware/software features like metal.There really isn't that much to spare.IOS already multitasks to an extent. Multi user support (which would be absolutely stupid) requires high storage capacity not better performance.It...
Better all around performance which would enable a new class of apps.Maybe but I'm expecting Apple to use all the performance the power profile would allow.
Jackson at the very least should be arrested, tried and permanently dealt with. It really a shame that we let people like this get away with so much.
Frankly if they come out with a fanless machine I'm hoping it is a new product that doesn't imoact the Air product line. That way the Airs can get all the benefit possible out of a 15 watt Broadwell.A nicer screen on the Air would be helpful. The question is do you need two different sizes of MBA? A 14" retina screen would just rock.
Broadwell should allow for higher clocks in the same model computers which ought to provide a performance boost. Intel is certianly focused on the GPU, possibly due to Apple pushing them in that direction. I actually see this as a good thing as it makes the integrated processors acceptable for a much wider array of users.This would certianly make for a very interesting MBP.I don't know about that. I could see Apple adding their own IP harvested directly from the A...
