With enough guesses, someone will be close and then they can claim later on they were accurate so people believe them in future and maybe get paid for their analysis. The fact Macrumors yesterday posted a mockup image with a 4.7" and 5.5" phone here:http://www.macrumors.com/2014/02/11/iphone-6-said-to-adopt-bezel-free-display/and then today, there comes out news about someone seeing a 4.7" and 5.5" form factor, it's clear that it's the usual cycle of rumors based on...
It's not shocking that you talk to a lot of people but even if it's 1000 people, it's still a fraction of a community that you describe as being in the hundreds of thousands and I'm sure not every single one of the people you talk to entirely dismisses AMD or OpenCL. What happens if NVidia goes bankrupt? All that code would have to be rewritten.It will still work, it'll just go into swap. Plus, in the context of GPU computing using 6GB of memory, 64GB is a lot of RAM to...
It only became popular recently. This site has a chart of the App Store position:http://marketingland.com/viral-rise-fall-flappy-bird-73479That rise to the top of the chart happened before the PewDiePie video, which was uploaded January 27th so the video probably just helped increase the downloads. It's possible it made $50,000 a day since about January 10th but not before. That's still over $1m and it doesn't stop generating money after taking it out the store.Getting to...
K40 is 1.43 teraflops, K20 does 1.17:http://www.nvidia.com/object/tesla-workstations.htmlso two D700s with 870 gigaflops each is 1.74 teraflops double precision. The two D700s cost $1000, K40 retail is $5300.You're not explaining why this is true universally. You assume that your specific software applies to the entire scientific community and make generalised statements about the Mac Pro's unsuitability for it and that Apple therefore doesn't care at all about that market...
There seems to be a compatible 8GB option now:http://www.crucial.com/store/mpartspecs.aspx?mtbpoid=E36E65ADA5CA7304You could put 4GB in one slot but integrated graphics gets a higher memory bandwidth using matched memory.The latest version is fine. One of the best ways to improve the responsiveness of the machine is to use a solid state drive instead of the hard...
Their latest figures include any deferrals and the ASP is still $1322 for the quarter, which is almost identical to the previous quarters going back 3 years. Anyway, whatever they choose to bundle free has nothing to do with the effect of post-PC devices. For now, the Mac line isn't suffering nearly as much as PCs.
Apple doesn't go out of their way to cater to special interest groups and the small volume of those groups is enough justification for that but that doesn't mean they don't expect anyone from those groups to be able to use their products. They have a close relationship with Wolfram who use OpenCL for scientific computation:http://blog.stephenwolfram.com/2011/10/steve-jobs-a-few-memories/http://www.wolfram.com/mathematica/new-in-8/cuda-and-opencl-support/That's quite a...
You seemed to reach the conclusion that the ASP would have declined first and then looked for facts to fit that conclusion and it was based around the assumed desktop ASP of $1600. The desktop ASP isn't $1600 and hasn't been for at least 3 years. The iMac makes up about 80% of the desktop sales or more so without it, there's not really enough revenue to shift the figures.The article conclusion is accurate that in spite of post-PC devices eroding PC sales, the Mac line...
What use case? We don't know all the places Apple uses OpenCL. A lot of them are in image processing, which GPU compute excels at but OpenCL isn't limited to that.Is there a fun part to running compute functions manually on a graphics card?Some programs are going to work better with CUDA but Apple developed OpenCL to allow using multiple hardware options. They have no reason to turn round and back proprietary NVidia options. Maybe they could have offered a dual Quadro as...
If you check their 10K 2012, they break down ASP for desktop vs laptop and this was before the supply constraint.2012 desktop was $1297, laptop was $12722011 desktop was $1379, laptop was $12722010 desktop was $1340, laptop was $1250ASP wouldn't have changed. The shipment volume would have differed as they noted a 700,000 unit shortfall so it would have been 4.8m last year and 4.8m this year.What was the conclusion you were hoping to reach? That Apple is struggling just...
