  • 'M1X' MacBook Pro set to arrive in 'several weeks'

    "high-end M1 chips"
    seems weird that Apple would take 1 year to ship new MacBook Pro with just some new version of the M1, when it already has new CPU cores ready to use...
    Just imagine that the new A15 iPhone SoC will almost certainly have better single core performance than the M1 in many tests.
    Not weird at all - the new CPU architecture always arrives with the new A series SoC, though it probably takes some time to adapt that technology to a new series of M SoC(s).

    Meanwhile, M1x is already built on the A14 architecture and apparently has been ready to ship since June.

    M2 should be built on the new A15 technology, and should replace M1 - and Apple may rejigger the core counts and configurations. We should hear more about improvements to the A15's architecture on Tuesday.
    that is just your assumption!
    There is nothing that stops Apple from having a new architecture ready for both kinds of SoC - they basically did that last year, one month between launches is nothing. It’s not like Apple doesn’t have the resources to develop more than one SoC at the same time, they did it a few times with the X series SoC.
    And there is no proof that they actually made a M1X, or thought about using a M1X, it could have been an M2X all along.

    The weird part is launching a new Mac CPU that is already outdated by a new iPhone SoC, where some software will have better performance on an iPhone than on a brand new high end MacBook Pro.
    He responds calmly and thoroughly to your weird claim and you jump at him by calling his comment an assumption without any awareness of your own assumption that started it all. You then double down by making bold, unsubstantiated assumptions that there is nothing stopping Apple from doing doing everything you want. Amazing! I hope we see a proper M2 this year, as well, but there's no need to set yourself for disappointment.
    Did I make any statement about the future as a fact? I didn’t! "could have" implies possibility not certainty! And as such why the hell do you say "without any awareness"?
    There is nothing that stops Apple from launching more than one SoC at the same time - the past demonstrates such capability. That capability is a fact, while the existence of a M1X, M2 or M2X are not facts, are assumptions.

  • 'iPhone 13' A15 chip performance continues dominance over Android rivals

    why do people believe these kind of things?
    iPhone prototypes out of factory don’t usually run full iOS capable of using these benchmarks. Only hardware flashed by Apple with the correct iOS version could do this, and those prototypes wouldn’t be circulating in China or Korea, at least not in July, so many months before release - those would be in Cupertino!

    Over the years they’ve been pretty close to actual results. Since the process is just a slightly improved version of last year’s, I haven’t been expecting much improvement coming from that end. And we don’t know what Apple has been concentrating on.
    I don’t know of any example where people reported close values when stating they had access to prototypes months in advance.
    I am not talking about benchmarks done on iPhones 1-2 weeks before launch, I am talking benchmarks on iPhones months before launch (here they say in July)

  • Patreon doesn't pay Apple's 30% App Store commission, and its CEO isn't sure why not

    I don’t think it’s that hard to understand why! Patreon is also used for different purposes that are not related with digital content to be consumed on a device.
