On my iPad 3 it has been a mixed bag with some aspects of the machine obviously slower and others improved. I especially like that Safari is much snappier. I would not be surprised to see some minor performance improvements but would be happy to see the bugs gone instead.
Hopefully I can get this beta installed to test soon as this is my second attempt to respond. Yep Safari hung up while writing my first response. By the way I see this particular bug when writing in a text box like this one. Generally it seems to be related to the use of a back space key and is near impossible to force to happen.In your case you describe something a bit different. If you can in fact reproduce the problem then I'd suggest detailing everything...
IOS actually seems to be better from me than Mac OS as far as bugs go. However the Safari bug, where it locks up during text entry, sucks. I have a bug report in for that one and it is still open. Most of the bugs in iOS 8 seem to be less noticeable if you aren't looking closely.So im hoping this release actually smooths things out. In forums like this I can get hit with the Safari lock up bug rather randomly and sometimes go for days not seeing a problem.
What are you talking about here, the released software or the Beta?
In this case Crystallwell is effectively a high speed cache chip. This isn't the same thing as system memory but the impact on performance is due to it being faster than DDR3 RAM.What I find shocking (if that is the right word) is that 128 MB of Cache RAM is more memory that some of my first few computers had altogether. The industry certainly has come a long way in one lifetime.The funny thing is you never heard complaints about Cache memory moving on die or into the...
Yes effectively a multi chip module.
Sorry about some of the auto correct typos in my earlier post!Well yeah sometimes it does sound that way. However you have to realize a few things. One is that going to RAM slows a processor down today significantly. There is a lot of contention for access to RAM and more cores and better GPUs integrated in the SoC just makes that bandwidth issue worst. The short term solution for desktop and probably mobile is DDR 4 wich is actually here now in some hardware. ...
No I mean high speed RAM mounted right in the same module as the processor silicon and closely tied to the processor through a very high speed bus. The goal is far higher performance out of the RAM.
Well that is hard to say exactly but this may interest you: http://www.anandtech.com/show/8217/intels-knights-landing-coprocessor-detailed. This chip is for 2015 and with an execrated trickle down to conventional chips we could see this in desk top chips in three years. However you also need to consider Haswells with Iris Pro which is a slightly different technology to deal with the same issue of memory performance. So the basic concept of putting memory in the...
Supply can and has been an issue. However Apple put LPDDR3 into the new Mini so I can't imagine that supply is an issue at this moment in time.I've gotten to the point I don't care that much about the iPhone. The current models are too big and frankly I have my iPad to turn to for most of my internet usage. The only reason I'm even thinning about upgrading my iPhone 4 is to get faster internet that I can share with an iPad. That to get rid of one data plan. ...
