Besides being antagonistic, jealous, and petulant with silly ads that ignore Apple's massive performance edge, Intel's 7nm process has failed again, and is a year delayed, at least. TSMC made FIVE nanometer process chips for Apple at high yields and the M1 has been shipping for months. Why would anyone even consider crippling their operation by using a demonstrably inferior fab process, unproven and plagued by delays and failures? By the time Intel can make an M1 Apple will be on their 3rd gen SOC.

Am I reading badly? The text under the Geekbench Single-Core Benchmarks chart does not follow from the chart data.It should say [CAPS are mine]"In terms of performance, initial benchmarks for the M2 on Geekbench put its single-core result at 1,869. This turns out to be faster than THE M1 chip under the same test AT 1,707 for the M1, BUT BEHIND THE M1 PRO, MAX and ULTRA at 1911, 1921, and 1929 RESPECTIVELY"
So, no one here has seen a DTK, nor knows anyone who has? Weight and audio port configuration seem easy to confirm. A discussion of Thunderbolt 4 on Apple Silicon would have been helpful. Widely reported (Ars Technica, CW, The Verge, etc) continued support of Thunderbolt on Apple Silicon is out there, as are explanations as to why it is not in the DTK
Apple's statement on T4: "Over a decade ago, Apple partnered with Intel to design and develop Thunderbolt, and today our customers enjoy the speed and flexibility it brings to every Mac. We remain committed to the future of Thunderbolt and will support it in Macs with Apple silicon."
