I sometimes think spinning off Global Foundries was the best thing AMD has done in a long time. Now if we could only get Apple to plow some of it's chip making into GF's US based facilities.
Good question! Obviously somebody has gotten their rumors wrong. Personally I see this as Apple dropping the ball, especially with Broadwell. Let's face it it took Intl so long to get Broadwell out the door that Apple could have designed 20 new laptops around it.
They did start out with a price premium but that didn't last long. Realistically Apple did lead the market into Retina screens in mass produced products.I have to agree here, Apples laptops are still best in their classes. They have continued to improve them. People need to realize that these are mass produced machines that aren't designed to meet their particular special interests.
Apple Pay was certainly discounted way to much upon its debut. Everything I've seen tells me this will be huge for Apple.
The lack of imagination sometimes is stunning. However it is even more perplexing that facts like the advantage seen by the 2GB of RAM in the new IPAds is so completely ignored. Just adding more RAM to an iPhine would be reason enough to want the next rev. It isn't just imagination here there are real features iPhone needs.Funny thing here is that my LTE service, on my iPad, is often faster than many of the so called WiFi hot spots around town.
Exactly! They are infact actually shipping product. Most interesting is that 2GB could also ship with a nice performance improvement if Apple wanted.
Lacking imagination are we?Actually that is unadulterated baloney. Right off the bat I can say without reservation that iPhone needs more RAM! This is hardly debatable and frankly when it happens you will see old phones quickly becoming hopelessly outdated.RAM is just one area where improvements could do a lot for iPhone. There are all sorts of possibilities for the camera for example. Apple has a long ways to go sensor wise too.Honestly I don't understand the...
I think it is more of a question of Samsung being in a leadership position with respect to DDR 4 and LPDDR 4 DRAMs. Let's face it the bottle neck to RAM never went away with the SoC, it in fact got worst due to both the GPU and CPU using the bandwidth. A faster RAM subsystem would allow Apple to deliver increased performance with minimal changes to the rest of the chip.Package on package could be phased out with stacked chip technology. IBM seems to be the leader in...
I'm about due, running an iPhone 4 here that I don't want to give up! That doesn't mean that I loose interest in what Apple is shipping though.I can. Seriously I see the concept of what a cell phone is, is in its infancy. There is potential to complete replace the computing needs of many people with more advanced cell phones. Performance will continue to go up remarkably so.
I'd hardly say stale. Apple has dropped the ball here getting updates out though. Broadwell would be one nice update to the Airs.
