joe nodden, 27 Dec 2020Assuming? Troll? More chipset alternatives? Are you mad?
The Kirin 990 is objectively slow... moreYes, it's pretty much the equivalent of the already failed snapdragon 8cx but with a way less capable GPU.
Don't know what Huawei pretends with this but to me it looks just like a "hey, me too!" to get on the Apple ARM-hype wagon.
Why anyone would consider this instead of a trusty x86 laptop. AMD laptops battery life is awesome and windows 10 is mature.
This might be an option when windows 10 or 10X arm can run everything else but I still don't see the point.
Anonymous, 27 Dec 2020MacBook replicant. I'd rather go for a Mac, the original stuff, with the M1 chipHhhhh you're hilarious man, the original stuff he said. Do you even know what you're talking about? It's a chip set based on the arm architecture, they've been around for a long time, it has nothing to do with Apple. Qualcomm, samsung and next amd, intel and even nvidia will start making them for pc.

joe nodden, 27 Dec 2020A laptop with worse performance than their phones. Sad.Power & cooling in laptop will be completely different to that in a phone.
Higher clocker, faster storage & memory will add to performance.
Plus it's running Linux natively.
Give some reasonings for your opinion. Spouting rubbish doesn't make your clever.

Come to think of it the troll made a strong point. Book, pencil and pad are proprietary words of Apple. Same hold for watch and phone.
But will a smartphone chip be enough for a notebook to handle that huge screen and a ton of processing? I'm assuming it won't be able to handle most PC games even if it can handle itself

The application itself was a web application that made use of a chinese analytics company. For what it's worth, that's less invasive than google analytics.
Oh wait, it's Chinese, so that automatically makes it bad.

While still in beta, it will become better with time. I remember when Google wanted to transition to ART a few years back. It happens in tech, and given Huawei's predicament, this is likely gonna be fast.

I would use a Matebook over a MacBook anyday, too. It's called ecosystem choices. So, go on trolling, nobody asked you to give opinion and assume it would have universal appeal. Shame.

Having more options is way better than monopolization which drags tech slowly because of complacency.
joe nodden, 27 Dec 2020Assuming? Troll? More chipset alternatives? Are you mad? The Kirin 990 is objectively slow... moreYou’re just plain stupid and thinks that he really knows the tech world we’re really in. FYI, I’m a Computer Scientist for almost 2 decades and we’re still developing other kinds of tech for the world and it’s not that easy - in terms of demand and availability of the resources cause of the high prices for the new tech to be develop.
