That totally means everything you say has to be true.

All of you going around bragging and exaggerating sure makes this amazing and means the people who are just being logical are supposedly crying.....
It's just really strong graphics on a new chip. And it's about graphics not the whole chip.
Plus when 14nm comes??? You mean the ones Samsung has already been hard at work at?
And how almost all major chips will be armv8 then?

That's a cute reply though. You choose one aspect of a whole comment proving someone's claims ridiculous to tell me that one aspect shows how truly lacking I am.
And then contradict the truth to do so. I'm going by what the phones themselves do.
You sure no how to make an amazing reply
racing, 23 Oct 2014iFans don't care about specs, lol. Somehow they do :)iOS has all important specifications for a smartphone.

Apple doesn't make their own chips, they design them and that is it. Others like Samsung and TSMC manufacture them and they just moved to 20nm. Every step towards smaller transistors gets harder and harder.
Intel has their own factories and are a step ahead compared to others. Now, what makes you think Intel will allow Apple to use their factories?

Don't talk BS, please.

There is a link to the Nexus 9 scores (64 bits) published by GSMArena themselves.
Too bad we didn't have a bet on this;).

Was in relation with the aluminium case of the iPad vs the plastic case of Nexus 9 and Tegra Shield.

Read the graphics section. Nope PowerVR is not the most powerful graphic chip. Nvidia is still the king.
Not really., 23 Oct 2014Not really outclassed. I'd say they're neck and neck.Neck to neck, but ipad is clearly a bit better than k1.

Apple engineers their own chip designs as well, giving them an even bigger edge on this.
Wonder why other companies don't use the PowerVR line more... they have been the best performer for the longest time! And is not even like Apple claimed they can be the only one using them.
