Interesting that the A chip looses on GPU speed, which was has always been touted as one of apples A chip strength.
3DMark's Slingshot Extreme graphics benchmark :
Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Reference Device Snapdragon 855 5,603
iPhone XS A12 Bionic 3,660
This is important for AR where rending 3D stereo (2 separate images) at 60+ FPS is important.
Really? They went through all this crap and now the found another way? FBI is a joke. They probably already had another way to get into the phone and we're just trying to set a precedent with terrorism as a way to get easy access to to everyone's phone. Now that apple didn't roll over and it looks like fbi will loose they drop it. Total asses
What's the legal justification for searching their phones at all?
This is where it starts. We wont tell you not to protest. But we are going to make you and any one else think twice. Just stay at home and post on some random apple blog how everything sucks so we can do what we want with little disruption.
"The figure assumes a $15 monthly fee and a 30 percent cut, putting video revenue at $13.5 billion"
HUH? apple is creating its own content, no 30% cut in that. Also they are doing contracts for licensing tv shows/movies that they do not create. You pay a dollar amount to these companies for this content and then add it your streaming service for a set amount of time. There is not a any kind of "cut" going on. Baffling how moronic these analysts can be.
sflocal said:I just don't get this. If Apple buys chips made by Broadcom, and those chips are found to be in violation, why should Apple even be involved? Did this company go after other phone manufacturers using their chips?
Edit: Wow I didn't know that you could sue end users. This is just plane nuts! https://www.jdsupra.com/legalnews/patent-infringement-lawsuits-against-sof-08530/
