Apple and Nvidia both have something in common, and that's waiting for their ticking time bomb to go off. Not a matter of if but when. Also Nvidia has technically lost sales, just that everyone is crazy over their AI hype.Well they’ve already done it several times and they aren’t any smaller. Just like nvidia has raised prices on all their cards and people still buying.
Probably because customers are going to defend buying a $1,000+ product that they don't want to admit isn't as good as they thought. Kinda why fanboys exist, to defend their purchases.Customers don’t appear to be nearly as fickle as you might imagine.
Seriously, and everyone thought it would be a good idea to jump on ARM?Apple has been a developer and designer of ARM since 2001 and owns a crapload of patents there that it actually licenses back to ARM.
Aren't they technically already dead? The idea here is that ARM wants to come back from it.If ARM wants to pick that fight they are welcome to but it would be a death sentence.
Why would ARM tag team with Apple who pays them the least amount per sale of ARM devices? If anything ARM would go after both for bigger profits, and Mediatek too.It’s more likely that ARM and Apple are tag teaming Qualcomm,
What changed for the customers though? Better battery life, faster performance, lower temperatures better interoperability between Mac and iOS?
- Battery life is questionable as long as you stay within their optimizations.
- Faster performance if you ignore benchmarks.
- Temps for Apple do indeed reach 95C and will throttle.
- Who cares about Mac and iOS having similarities?
Except for the loss of 32-bit applications and taking a dump on Windows application compatibility and performance.Customers saw no difference,
That's why all of them still have a PC laying around. It's one of the reasons why people still use a PC, because your old applications still work. It's also why people used Windows XP for a very long time. Microsoft has tried to go ARM but never got anywhere with it, for this reason. Microsoft also tried to lock people out of side loading when they initially released Windows on ARM, which only adds to one of the reasons why ARM was never adopted on Windows.On the customer side the transition was basically seamless.
