Two years? All they need to do is up the clock rate and bump up the cache/memory interface. This processor is going to make this rev a must have.
Funny nobody complains about it being soldered in! 😜😝😜
You can't be serious here. IPad got the most complete update to date and by far is the biggest overhaul of a prioduct that Apple has released to date.What we are seeing here is perfectly normal behavior for a hot product. You see a massive rush by everybody and their brother to get a new device then eventually the market cools off and you get sales to people that actually need the device.I'm not going to defend what happened in the keynote, from my standpoint it is...
I don't understand IPad Mini 3 either. At the very least they could have put an A8 in there. The only thing I can think of here is that sales are so bad they didn't think an update would be worth it.You can't be serious!!! IPad Air 2 is a massive update will little left untouched. What did you expect that Apple didn't do to Air?Just the vastly faster GPU in iPad Air 2 is well worth selecting it over the original iPad. Take into account all the other improvements...
once you are aware of what you shouldn't do, then you adapt your programming style. So this should really only be a temporary set back. In other words it may look bad now but shouldn't be a problem at all with new projects.
32 bit apps will continue to work for some time. Think fat binaries.As an aside, I'm actually a bit shocked that Apple hasn't moved all platforms to 64 bit yet. The sooner they can sweep away all 32 bit hardware the sooner we will see 64 bit only apps.
WallStreet hasn't gotten Apple numbers right in some time. In that regard who cares, we will get the real numbers soon.
What I see here and frankly I could be wrong, is that they did no boost the power supply capacity. They then added another TB port for which they have to take ten watts out of the power budget. I just don't think they have the excess capacity to power up the common Haswell quad cores. I also wonder if the move to LPDDR3 RAM was to address this.On another forum somebody also alluded to the mobile Haswell quads as using a different socket. I haven't researched that...
If your idea of basic use are the same as mine then yeah the low end Haswell is good enough. The problem is I see many of these computers being used beyond what could be called basic service. "Basic" might be better rephrased as business apps.The reverse is also true, people will blame sluggish Apps on the "processor" when in reality it is the GPU that is holding things up.The processor cores are actually faster that is a good thing for most users. The lost of the...
Once we get a handle on the chips in these machines we will know more about the GPU in each. Intel has different base clock speeds depending upon the model which can impact performance.
