Well everybody does that if they want to stay in business. That is they engineer a product for a market, price point and like. What I have trouble with is the differentiation between the entry model and their upsell models.There are some good Linux projects out there and many more bad ones. I do believe you are right, some of these projects are touched upon by their developers when they get a spare moment. For some reason C is way over used and out of place in many of...
That is very true but the point remains, the screen and electronics to drive a TV is cheap. Apple can add the computer electronics for a reasonable amount and still have machine that is lower cost than their current products.Honestly I think Apple was getting greedy over the last couple of years trying to squeeze more margin out of its products than the market was willing to pay. That is why a we saw that realignment in price of the laptops a year or so ago. This...
Considering how much a TV set goes for these days I'd have to say that Apple has plenty of room for a low cost iMac.Notebooks is where most of the market is these days. It is the one reason why I don't think a low price iMac will stimulate sales all that much.With a whole new generation of chips coming from Intel I can see Appple offering a low end laptop that doesn't suck either this years end or next year. The market would be similar to the iPad, that is people that...
Code:You would really have to wonder about an investor stupid enough to read these forums and then make investment decisions based upon what he reads. Sadly I think some do.
It is almost a certainty that Apple would be working on their own IP or with that of a vendor to implement a DDR 4 interface on their processors already. These things take time, further before a standard can be approved you really should demonstrate that the technology works. In the past that would likely have been done by vendors like Intel and Micron. Apple, now being a processor designer, has to be doing much of this work themselves and likely started when the...
Yep it would be very nice to see much faster RAM in my next iPad.In relation to the iPad RAM has always been a bottle neck. 1GB just doesn't cut it these days and the alternatives to large RAM foot prints just mask the problem and slow the machine down. I'm so convinced of the seriousness of the RAM problem on my iPad 3 that I won't up grade until Apple at least doubles available RAM. However 4GB would be an even better move.How quickly something supporting DDR 4...
Probably around the speed of a Core Duo. Understand though that an A7 would need adaptation to work well as a desktop processor. The number one concern would be a better memory interface. They would likely need to add some high speed ports to the chip. In the end it would be hard to guess actual performance. I think it is fair to say that current A7 hardware is RAM starved and bandwidth limited.the other big unknown is how fast can the A7 actually run. 2, 3 or 4...
Maybe. There are rumors about that Intel will be implementing DDR 4 in some of the Haswell refresh models. I'm not sure I believe this but it would be nice. It would make the boring Haswell refresh far more interesting. Problem is nothing on CPU-World supports those rumors.At this point Haswell refresh comes in June. If true that could mean next year before we see a Mini with DDR4.
I like your thinking here!!It may not be special but the various manufactures have the ability to exceed others quality wise honestly if Microns RAM draws a few micro amps less than the competition it is a big advantage in mobile. Beyond that Micron has had a long relationship with Apple.Hybrid Memory Cube would be a wonderful turn of events! The speed of this stuff is pretty incredible but you need the right interface on your processor. This is where Apples DIY...
Not to quote you twice but are you thinking about the so called Braswell chip Intel is talking up? If so that would have to be an extremely low end MBA. Apples A7 would perform about the same.
