agreed , but sadly the transistor count has no longer been doubling CPU perfomance in the last 4 quad core intel i7 chips, the 2008 i7 was 830million transistors currently 2013 i7 haswell is 1.4 billion, in 5 years thats an increase of less than 75% and, most of that being spent on integrated GPU perfomance rather than the CPU itself, in that period CPU performance has not increased by 75% ? if moores law were still accurate we would be at 4.98 billion transistors by now and 8 cores would be standard, moore’s law has been dead for a while, because CPU manufacturers are pouring the dies size savings into more chips per wafer as they internally believe current performance for the average user is very much sufficient, more chips per wafer leads to better profits.
with alternate reality’s on the scale and detail of these occupying them with fake esteem and ambition ?
3 of those mmo games alone would be enough to occupy a youthtime ?
surely the game industry must implode can there really be enough gamers to play all those games ?
what is the loss of productivity from all this.
we cant have another bradley manning happening
lap It up morons, weve made some especially custom super compact designer apple crap for you, hmm let me see >
Non Standards Adherent – bespoke custom apple nightmare
Surface Mount BGA city – heat death ? 1 chip dies your whole computer is f*d, thats another £1500 logic board please mr customer
Still Using Xeons, the least price efficient form of CPU power clocked at half their 5ghz potential.
BGA twin mobile graphics :( or single X2 desktop card ?
not upgradeable ?
airflow not filtered ?
why is every company trying to kill concept of an open standards based PC ?
looks like their going down a kind of SGI iris style compact designer wastebasket route, what would be revolutionary power wise ? 16 cores at as close to 5ghz as possible, which is the maximal potential of intel’s platform ? but in that thermal envelope its unlikely to get anywhere near it, the only benefit would be if being surface mount everything made it allot cheaper to manufacture, but no doubt since its so custom, it will be vastly more expensive per core than a powerful pc ?
if it is ATI in some form of crossfire, then they will have performance issues with crossfire mode and runt frames no doubt that mac ati driver will have this issue sorted way behind the PC driver.
your PS4 will have faster DDR5 memory
the top spec version wil be £6000 ?
upto 128gb memory
yet the truth is I will probably still be buying one ! hypocrit that I am, as there will be little choice, why ? because dual processor macs aren’t purchasable any other ways, this machines is going to be as usual perversely expensive to fix if anything goes wrong as it looks apple bespoke proprietary custom parts all the way ? each processor board including surface mount CPU ? £800 ? want to open it up into an open hardware standard apple ? … no I didn’t think so.
looks like all mechanical storage will be external if used. doubt it will be overclockable since the thermal solution is fixed.
looks like their custom dual gpu boards with the CPU on the other side of the triangle ? looks like a darth vader r2d2 space heater that will warm a room nicely.
They’ve shaken up PC design perhaps, but since its no doubt all patented up the wazoo and not an open standard it will just be, bleed through the posterior custom expensive.
apple will no doubt come out with a custom thunderbolt raid array to match it ?
upgradeable elements after purchase ? memory and custom design pcie ssd ?
I want apple feedback contextually accessible in every interface element in every app, so that you can get the best improvements to make in your os and software as feedback appears not to be working, very time you release an os you seem to make things worse, start listening to the largest HCI base you have your users worldwide.
Notes app needs and export all notes function in one hit to plaintext documents
I don’t want to waste my time copying and pasting notes out of the notes app ? which is an appalling waste of human time when multiplied by the number of users,
if you have lots of notes each containing multi thousand word bits of information, and exporting my data for backup from the programs I use is an essential thing, why would i trust that a company or a service or software would be there indefinately ? data is portable and should remain portable and use open source agreed formats and standards, exportable by the user into data formats relevant for them, notes should export ino a series of plaintext documents at minimum in one hit, so that we are covered if something bad happens. in a future war data centers might be a prime target at that point, just as television and radio stations were in the past.
a little too much “Album Only” on songs in some places were being driven to buy whole albums, ie padded albums like we suffered in the physical era.
if necessary up the price for longer track parts of concept albums, but don’t bind people into buying whole albums ? as per usual apple learn the lesson of “Giving the User control and choice” ?
so his cubex channel was taken over password reset and linked into world of longplays, hmm we will see how this goes, but im sure allot of angst now rests with hipponios and ironclaw, the scenario where only certain people benefit from the longplay success is, those who collect the renumeration from youtube partnering, hopefully there will be some justice one day, but it seems unlikely. a community effort subverted ?
intel IHS still not soldered onto the CPU die just like ivy bridge :( not happy, no doubt rubbish tim used instead, will wait for next chip gen to see if IHS is soldered onto CPU die, dont wish to to have to delid the cpu to OC properly or have cleanly related core temps when high OC’ing, and haswell is not more powerful, just better energy efficiency, this is not an upgrade for the LGA market for sure as an improvement in integrated graphics are of no major interest to desktop gamers who if they’re spending £170 on an LGA CPU will be spending that on a separate graphics card anyway ? no shakes no interest, and would not wish my oc’ability to degrade with aging TIM in the CPU itself, life is too short for intels cost saving method for attaching the IHS, in what is a premium expense CPU.
