Again.. sorry about the quote thingy.If Apple didn’t think they could make better, ground breaking devices with Apple Silicon. Then they shouldn’t have switched.But these are baseline. They aren’t even high end devices yet. That’s coming in the next few years.cloudguy said:joguide said:
But as for right now, there are already plenty of fanless Windows 10 - and I mean real Windows, not Windows on ARM that tries and fails to emulate x86! - laptops out there. Consider the Acer Switch 7: 16 GB of RAM and Intel i7 processor. There are also a couple of Dell XPS fanless laptops and a couple of Asus ones in addition to more Acer ones.
Get this: folks are kicking around the idea that the new Intel Tiger Lake CPUs with integrated Iris XE graphics will allow fanless gaming laptops to become a thing (because Tiger Lake is Intel's low heat/low power design and Iris XE GPU - which is integrated in all Tiger Lake Core i5 and higher chips - is supposed to provide gaming performance on the caliber of the Nvidia MX350).
So seriously, you guys need to pay attention to the wider tech world more. If you are thinking that Apple Silicon is going to result in these magical devices that the rest of the tech world can't comprehend let alone compete with that is going to result in Apple quadrupling or more its market share and influence, prepare to be sadly mistaken. The tech media might not know this - as Apple devices are all that they use and as a result truly cover - but actual consumers do.
Sorry if the quote thing below was messed up. Anyway.. I don’t know if people he thought that, but I always assumed these chips would be custom built for their computer line. I always used the iPad Pro as an example- it’s pretty powerful especially for video editing. The 2017 iPad Pro is able to edit 4K footage with no problem while my old 2011 iMac couldn’t even try. For the longest time, that’s how I did all my editing (on LumaFusion).Anyway. Wait until the M1X comes out next year. And yeah that’s my guess on what it’ll be called.cloudguy said:But while on my way to the corner I will protest:
Apple did not reach this performance with the 4 and 6 core iPhone and iPad chips as people were claiming previously.
Now in the corner of shame I go, sucking my thumb in the process. But you folks who claimed that this would have been possible with the iPhone chips need to go to corners of their own.
