iPad Air si iPhone 5S au mai multa putere de procesare decat un MacBook Air din anul 2010, iata rezultatele primelor teste

  Chip-ul A7 din interiorul tabletei iPad Air a oferit deja noilor produse Apple titlul de cele mai rapide terminale mobile de pe piata, insa facand o comparatie cu anii trecuti, observam cat de multa putere de procesare au acum iDevice-urile noastre. Celebrul blogger american John Gruber a comparat rezultatele iPad Air din benchmark-urile Geekbench 3 si Sunspider cu  cele ale iPhone 5S si MacBook Air 2010, iar voi puteti observa singuri ca ambele terminale noi ale Apple sunt mai rapide decat vechiul laptop.

To me, the comparison that is most interesting is to my MacBook Air. In exactly three years, Apple has produced an iPad that outperforms a then-brand-new MacBook. Three years is a decent chunk of time in this industry, and the MacBook Air has made great strides since then, but this (a brand-new iPad Air versus a late 2010 MacBook Air) is a credible comparison. In many ways the iPad Air is not just the superior device, but clearly so — it has a retina display, the MacBook Air does not; it gets 10 hours of battery life, the MacBook Air was advertised at just 5 hours back then (and as an old and much-used device, my personal MacBook Air gets significantly less than 5 hours of battery life today).

  MacBook Air-ul lansat atunci de catre Apple nu are Retina Display-ul tabletei iPad Air cu o rezolutie aproape dubla, functioneaza in baza platformei Intel si se pare ca Apple a reusit sa il intreaca fara probleme, chiar si cu un smartphone. Mai mult decat atat, chip-ul A7 al celor de la Apple poate utiliza pana la 8 GB de latime de banda pentru un singur procesor, iar conform celor de la Anandtech, niciun alt producator de terminale mobile cu procesoare ARM nu reuseste sa ofere performante precum cele ale iPhone 5S si iPad Air.

That’s the other aspect of what makes A7 so very interesting. This is the first Apple SoC that’s able to deliver good amounts of memory bandwidth to all consumers. A single CPU core can use up 8GB/s of bandwidth. I’m still vetting other SoCs, but so far I haven’t come across anyone in the ARM camp that can compete with what Apple has built here. Only Intel is competitive.

  Chiar daca majoritatea privesc noul chip A7 de 64 de biti ca fiind o simpla miscare de marketing a celor de la Apple, in realitate performantele acestei componente sunt impresionante si demonstreaza cat de serioasa este Apple in ceea ce priveste dezvoltarea propriilor chip-uri. Daca acum Apple ne ofera performantele unor Mac-uri vechi de 3 ani de zile, ma intreb oare ce se va intampla anul viitor cand saltul de performanta ar trebui sa fie la fel de mare?
