How did VLIW architectures get pulled into this?As for Apple I wouldn't be surprised to see them deviate from the norm and start to consider merging CPUs with neural networks, FPGA and the like.
No problem! Honestly I'd rather see a few screw ups from you then to not hear from you at all! You are greatly missed when you don't post at all.Way to go Relic!Oh and hang in there we are all pulling for you.
All APU style chips are hobbled by the memory interface. That is one reason why Intel gas added an in package fast cache chip. It is also why on chip caches are so important in these sorts of SoC.
I think you mis the point, this has little to do with Apple as Apples market is captive. What it is is strong competition for the part of the market Intel wants.
It isn't sloppy it is good engineering. Eventually you have to improve your optics to get substantially better cameras in cell phones. Goods optics require space.
IOS 8 helps a lot! Safari does have more than a few bugs in beta though.
Starting production right now would be good for a September launch. I'm a bit excited and are hoping that Apple upgrades the device properly to convince me to upgrade. As it is even my iPad 3 is running better with iOS 8.
Why? Nikon does it all the time, that is market cameras with different capabilities. Beyond that Apple has a lot of customers that are at best idiots and would get all bent out of shape if their precious iPhone sprouted a bump to support a better camera. Put a good quality camera in one model and people that understand the how's and whys will gravitate to it. Those that have an emotional problem over a bump on the back side can stick with the lesser platform.
Features = space. As such I would fully expect that the large phone would have more features.A faster processor and better camera is exactly what a larger phone could support.Degrade it? By definition the new phines would be an improvement over old phones. Honestly I'm hoping Apple comes out with an iPhone 4 sized phine with an A7 or A8 processor. I don't need a huge phone but an updated processor would be fantastic.
The perception was and probably was fairly accurate, that the device was grossly overpriced. The thing had zero appeal to me the minute I saw the specs and realized what I was getting for the price.You have to register to take pictures in the NL? That is a scary thought right there. People wonder why we resist gun registration in this country, it is pretty much a slippery slope.In some situations that would be expected. However it really means nothing. The people...
