You mean PCIe, except it won’t be.
Yeah, this isn’t happening, ever, and you should know that by now. It has a real file system. You are never getting access to it.
Do you know anything at all about Apple? Have you ever seen their products? How about a keynote, did you see any of those?
It's not FUD if I'm speaking from experience. I'm already annoyed by my 1GB iOS devices.
Bringing up what ancient machines had or games used brings nothing to this discussion. In 2013, 1GB causes Safari to boot tabs out of main memory like crazy, and even one heavy duty modern game will boot all other apps from memory and will reload itself after going to the home screen, that's all I need to know.
I've been a iPad 1, 2 and 3 owner, I've play with jailbreaked iOS device since the original iPhone and I've surfed the net with NCSA Mosaic alpha and a 1200 bauds modem. I don't think you've got a good idea of how much resources you really needs for running apps, developer do, users usually don't (when is the last time you've check your page ins-page outs value on your iPad ?). Beside what is the problems with swap out from ram background and inactive apps and reload back from flash memory? If there is a real problem here why it doesn't concern game console? Apple developer guides line are pretty explicit on limits developer need to consider and got the most homogenous mobile platforms, for any software issues there is no one else to blame than developers.
I haven't seen yet a iOS developer blogs saying they don't have enough resource to play with when it compare with Android ecosystem.
Also, doesn’t Apple have a patent on new RAM that only powers what’s in use?
I saw that patent, Like many Apple patent I don't know if any iDevice is using it yet. I'm still waiting for liquid metal casing, self charging device with solar panel on the back and multi layer display.
