Reminds me of those optical switches used in some keyboards, this concept may be possible to go mass-production.
karmadave said:- Limited to AMD graphics (and only 2 x GPU's). Nvidia is the leader in high-end GPU's and I'm surprised Apple doesn't support ANY of their products on this platform. Maybe that's coming in the future? This must have been a topic at WWDC...
That's what RAID cards for, isn't it? Even a 4x slot will be adequate for 8 drives (at least bandwidth wise).- Limited to 2 internal drive bays. Kind of a head scratcher. Most high end professional workstations offer up to 8 (or more) internal drives + RAID.
I only knew 8K HDR as prototypes, and all having issues with bandwidth. Rest of the 8K monitors doesn't offer HDR were because of that.Apple's new 6K XDR monitor is cool, but you can buy an 8K XDR monitor, for around $3,500, while Apple's 6K monitor starts at $5,000.

That's just hideous, the first time I've seen someone who gets angry when the hardware improves.
You may also hold your 6502 and throw away your i7 craps, they're horribly inefficient, who the heck needs GUI when you can run BASIC programs in a loop?
AppleExposed said:Soli said:AppleExposed said:iPhone Pro sounds so stupid for a casual mass consumer product. Pro makes sense for Macs and work/media creation devices. It's what makes the iPad so beautiful. It's casual AND a workhorse for industrial/media applications.
All I care about is the date since rumors ruin the surprise.
Also PLEASE a new Apple TV with A12x to welcome Apple Arcade.
2) Casual is a ridiculously limited view of what a smartphone can do and what it's used for.
3) I couldn't give a shit what a product is called so long as it has the features I want and need at a price point I find agreeable. They can call it the iPhone Pro Mate S10 Galaxy poop:emoji for all I care.
Can't do both with iPhone...... nor would I want to.
Well, as long they’re not going back to the past then I’ll be fine.
There are several things that’s great in the butterfly keyboard, dropping them won’t be a wise move:
- more efficient and precise backlighting.
- stable keys.
- curve on keycaps are much noticeable.
- more tactile (while having shorter travel).
- overall smaller footprint, less parts to make.
chasm said:To Tomahawk's point, I am quite confident that Apple will continue to offer Intel chips as an option for Bootcamp users even well after they start the move to ARM-based chips. For those people bashing Intel for not moving on from 14nm, I would remind you of two things:
1. Desktop/notebook chips are a very different class of chip than mobile chips, so the comparison to TSMC's achievements is all but moot. There's a reason why this transition, when it happens, will take a good long while to complete. Desktop/notebook chips do a LOT more "stuff" than mobile chips.
2. AMD hasn't "moved on" from 14nm chips either, last I looked.
That said, Intel is supposed to be industry leader and should, by its own admission, be further along on 10nm than it is, so they deserve some criticism. But particularly with the x86 baggage these chips carry, don't be surprised if 10nm stays the standard in the desktop/notebook space for quite some years, once affordably achieved.
Speaking of AMD, Zen 2 will be 7nm, and it will be here no later this year. It most likely will be two 8-core CPU die on the same board.

Processor,ram and storage space should all be disclosed when people click on tech specs. This should not be a hidden secret that people have to search for. Imagine having to search for this info when buying a Mcbook Pro

CheeseFreeze said:rinosaur said:That camera design is absolutely atrocious... Apple design really going downhillThe same is visible in the iPhone. The phone cameras has become a primary reason to buy or skip a phone. It is a camera I take 90% of my photos with, despite a DLSR that I have with 5 professional lenses.Function over form is completely justified. People were complaining about the bump Apple introduced years ago, but I don’t expect that same mass critique in 2019 at all. The alternative would be to lose out to Android systems and to offer a subpar photo taking quality / experience. These are the laws of physics. A bump is needed and lenses need to be exposed. What is the alternative, really?
