You keep using that word. I don't think it means what you think it means.Fact: the iPhone 5 lasts 10 hours.Fact: the iPhone 5 is thin and light.Fact: the iPhone 5 CPU is faster than the one in the iPad 3Fact: the iPhone 5 GPU is as fast as the one in the iPad 3 according to AnandConclusion: an A6 based mini will be as fast as the iPad 3 with the same power requirements as the iPhone 5 scaled to the larger 7.85" display. The increase in display size is offset by the larger...
No, you keep saying it is physically impossible. It has been shown that the A6 GPU is as fast as the A5X and the iPhone 5 despite a much smaller battery lasts 10 hours.So the delta between the iPhone 5 and a retina iPad Mini power usage wise is a larger panel and perhaps a speed bump. It should run as fast as the iPad 3 and maintain the same dimensions and weight.How do I know this? Because the iPhone 5 is powerful, thin, light and has good battery life.
  Bows were better military weapons pretty much until bolt action rifles.  The difference is that you can train a musketeer in a season but it takes a hell of a lot longer to train an archer (a lifetime for the best longbowmen).  Likewise, using a musket is a lot less physically demanding than pulling a 80-150 lb bow.  A longbowman might be able to churn out 6-12 arrows in a minute vs 2-4 for the musketeer but not for more than a couple minutes before they rapidly...
  Eclipsing the iPad by Jan 2015 MAX?  LOL.   Despite the older slower hardware the iPad Mini is faster than the Nexus 7 at a lot of things.  With an A6 + retina update next year it'll be a no compromise tablet.   http://www.pocketgamer.co.uk/r/iPad/Need+for+Speed%3A+Most+Wanted/feature.asp?c=46679
"Nevertheless, if you're looking at the difference between integrated graphics in an Ultrabook or a slightly-degraded GeForce GTX 460 on the same machine, the minor performance loss is pretty inconsequential."   http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/pci-express-graphics-thunderbolt,3263-7.html   Going over a x4 lane TB link with a mid-grade GPU works fine...if we only had the drivers for it.   A TB dock with a GPU, ethernet, FW, USB3 out would sell if it were...
  Really?  Is that why Aja, BlackMagic, Motu, etc are releasing thunderbolt pro video products?     Or Avid releasing Pro Tools with a thunderbolt adapter?  Universal Audio now has a TB daughtercard for the Apollo and Apogee has a TB bridge for their Symphony line. 
The physical panel is thinner in the 5 vs 4. If you use the new panel with 1 less layer you save space but it may cost more. Either way the panel is a nonissue since the iPad mini can use either to get retina vs the 3GS screen in the current mini.No. Just that the benchmarks suggest that the A6 with the 3 GPU cores is sufficent vice the A5X based on the GPU 1080p benchmarks.To quote Anand:"Take resolution into account and the iPhone 5 is actually faster than the new...
  Why have you become a zealot when a few years ago you were a much more level headed fan?   The reason the comparison is made is because these are current devices with higher PPI and Apple has another 6-9 months to get the Retina.  The panel itself is a non-issue given that the iPhone 5 has thinner panel technology that is lighter as well.  Or they can use the iPhone 4/4S panel.   GPU is a non-issue even if Rogue isn't available because the iPhone 5 about as fast as the...
  Most successful revolutions require the military to change sides.  Those that are unable to get the military to flip or flee tend to get pounded.  While much of the difference between Libya and Syria is the Russian and Chinese veto in the UN a lot also is the fact that Assad's military is still loyal to him.  Mostly because they are Alawite who believe that losing means getting wiped out by the Sunni.   Still, any American rebellion against the USG that cannot gain the...
    Not appreciably.  They started shooting at 11:19.  The school police officer shot at them at 11:24 but the massacre in the Library happened between 11:29-11:36.  This is after two other nearby officers were on scene and shot at them at 11:26.  They had the run of the school until they committed suicide at 12:08.     It costs about as much to go to Sidwell ($34,000) as Harvard ($38,000) but you get to pay for 12 years rather than 4.  My wife and I make good money but...
