I am guessing, ( or hoping ) the reason for Intel's delay is due to software / compiler support. My guess is that to take advantage of every performance Skylake has to offer you must recompile you App.
The PS4 is running on not very powerful CPU core and generation ( or two generation ) old GPU tech with 28nm. Which is 2 Generation from leading node now. Transistor count are roughly similar in the 3 Billion range.
OLED is much cheaper to produce. Especially with LG's WOLED. Hopefully this means LG has improved the white colour power issues, production yield on smaller size screen. And may be for the first time ever OLED will win IPS on every categories.
1. Intel has a division called Intel Custom Foundry, which produce chips for selected 3rd Party aka Altera and some other company not disclosed. It is not listed in the latest quarterly report so this may have been closed down now.   You can hardly called Itanium make chips for others when Intel actually own the design as well and Fab it for themselves. Yes HP was involved but not to the point where it was similar to 3rd party.  Apple used to use Infineon ( Which Intel...
 Exactly my thought as well. May be the A8 will be redone with Samsung 14nm tech. To fit those in iPhone 6C, Apple TV or iPad Mini. Having said that, sometime i think the cost of SoC is pretty marginal in the whole picture. Compared to Screen, cover glass, Baseband, Wifi / Bluetooth, NAND and Memory.
With the rumor of a low power mobile Xeon, I wonder if Apple will fit those in iMac.
Yes, UK has caught up a lot in recent years, If you factor in the living cost and property pricing etc, UK is properly one of the cheapest.The only thing they are lacking is Wired connection, which they are working on it now.
The tech needs to be better, the terminal hardware needs to be better, support needs to be better. I want 0.3 sec of payment, not 3 sec. I want electronic receipt, I think a lot of these will happen in time, but so far there dont seems to be any incentive for merchants to have NFC payment ready.
The report also claims this is a long term project, in the 5 years+ timeline.   5 years down the road we are talking about 5G era. First commercial 5G network in the world likely start at 2018 - 2019. The same timeline also gives 802.11ax WiFi. Which should finally get us real world 1Gbps Wireless Speed on a 2x2 Antenna config.  Then there is LTE-U, LTE on Unlicensed Spectrum 5Ghz and MuLTEFire.   It would be possible for Apple to built a world wide Small Cell Station...
Wow wow wow, we are getting too far ahead of ourselves.   First, the speed was referring to latency, not bandwidth. And from Anandtech and other sources, Xpoint latency is likely to be 2x to 10x slower then RAM. Which is why Intel said it wont be a replacement for RAM.   CPU is extremely sensitive to Latency, That is why we now have L1 - L3 Cache, and L4 if you count Intel eDRAM. As a matter of fact the Latency improvement over the years for DRAM does not match the...
