For many if they don't understand something they don't see it as new or a feather in Apples cap. This is why the great accomplishment of the A series processors gets ignored, especially the A7. A7 is a significant confirmation of Apples design skills, the more information that leaks out the more it becomes obvious that A7 demonstrates a significant advancement for Apple and is in fact a very new product.On the other hand I do expect much more this year than last so...
It wouldn't be WWDC then. Instead you would have AWDC, EWDC and AWDC, for Americas, Europe and Asia. Due to the usual technology roll outs that wouldn't work at all
I really hope not! Much depends upon Intel and the hope that they have worthwhile hardware in the next few weeks. There are indications that Intel might have DDR4 RAM interfaces on some of the Haswell refresh chips. If so that could have considerable impact on performance, they won't be Broadwell chips but bandwidth is a big issue on all chips with integrated GPUs.This is a thing I don't understand either. Maybe Apple isn't selling enough to see an upgrade as...
Baloney! If a significant technology advance required it the iPhone would have required it. You seem to forget that one of Steve's personal goals was to remake the photography would.Again you don't know what you are talking about here. If the gains are worth it Steve would jump on such a design. Why? Because one of his goals with iPhone was and apparently still is Apples aim, to revolutionize the photography world. A phone with even a modest 2X optical zoom is...
Bingo!, Powerful enough to replace the Mini as a desktop computer.
People do need to understand that we don't know what the maximum clock rate on A7 is much less an unreleased A8. However ARM cores have been reported to run much faster than 1.6 GHz. If Apple can hit 2.6 GHz on a much faster memory bus I'm pretty sure that A7 or A8 would put many mainstream chips to shame.On modern hardware recompiles take place in minutes, it is seldom an all day ordeal anymore.That could very well be triple to an extent but do realize that Intel is...
You are assuming that there would be fragmentation. There are a number of ways Apple could pull this off. One way is to make it an iOS laptop. The second would be to make it a Mac laptop that runs iOS apps in a window. That is just two approaches.You can't look a machines designed for the pro market in the same way as for the general consumer. The fact is, as demonstrated by the iOS world, is that most consumers have zero need for i86 compatibility. Even more so...
How about maybe! It really depends upon what Apple delivers.Did you not read the article, the performance potential is there. You assume that in a laptop that at they would use the same exact hardware. A faster RAM interface would have a dramatic impact.Intel compatibility is only of concern to a few. As to fat binaries that is looking to the past.Baloney.The benefits would be huge, laptops that are 2-300 dollars cheaper being one benefit. Piloting your own ship...
Not at all, for the most part iOS is Mac OS with a slightly different GUI and a more restricted execution environment. That being said I'd love to see a Mac OS device that uses A7/A8. Even better if the machine supports easily booting other operating systems.
One would be good enough. The biggest hurdle to SoC performance these days is bandwidth to RAM. If Apple solves that an A8 would be fine.
