Anonymous, 23 Oct 2014Benchmarks, benchmarks, benchmarks. It's all about the benchmarks. Or is it.It is when 80% of your traffic comes from the worlds second most populated country. To them benchmarks are everything because if they can't have their precious benchmarks then they can't feel good about their purchases because otherwise there's no way to compare their cheap Mi3 to a S5 or M8 which costs twice as much.
Anonymous, 23 Oct 2014Nexus 9 is going to destroy it.Already been tested and it doesn't.
It is interesting how they choose to show only some test results and not all. Outclasses K1 maybe in some areas, as the k1 outclases the Air 2 in others. For example render quality of the air 2 is half of that of the k1, so....

Next year when they put Nvidia Maxwell in SoC at 20nm, this is when things get interesting. Maxwell is already crazy effective, a 150W GPU beats a 250-300W AMD GPU.... at 28nm.

Anonymous, 23 Oct 2014If that's not the Nexus 9 i wonder what SoC is that :ODid you read the article?
It can beat a 1 year old gpu...
But it can't beat the the K1 Denver 64 bit. :P
Apple is really full of surprises.. Well, sometimes. :)
this chip( A8X)is absolutely amazing... Why? its performance is formed with half of energy consumption by that of tegra. We cannot say the result gap between apples and snapdragon. Snapdragon is already out of the comparison.
Additionally, the bandwidth(1.5 ghz) can be upgraded to 1.7 to use new chipset (maybe called A8XS) on mac-book air. GPU is ok to use. The upgraded one would be likely to beat those of intels.
Amazing... Perfect... Unbelievable.... because you make us meet the next year technology... Well donee...
If that's not the Nexus 9 i wonder what SoC is that :O
This is compared to the Tegra K1 32-bit. I am curious to see how the 64-bit variant is doing ..
offscreen is better only, it means totally nothing :D
I think most people wouldn't care about the new speed esp. when you're using iPad Air first gen. Its also fast, responsive, and fluid. and gaming performance is stellar already
This is the true innovation. Performance is not just counted in the number of cores or in the measurement of gigahertz but in the masterful execution of the OS
Probably the most impressive device of Apple specs-wise.
Bigben, 23 Oct 2014This seems fakeBased on what, if you don't mind me asking? Or is it just your dislike of the product talking?
