*Testing conducted by Apple in October 2020 using preproduction MacBook Air systems with Apple M1 chip and 8-core GPU, as well as production 1.2GHz quad-core Intel Core i7-based MacBook Air systems, all configured with 16GB RAM and 2TB SSD. Tested with prerelease Final Cut Pro 10.5 using a 55-second clip with 4K Apple ProRes RAW media, at 4096x2160 resolution and 59.94 frames per second, transcoded to Apple ProRes 422. Performance tests are conducted using specific computer systems and reflect the approximate performance of MacBook Air.

Once upon a time they were actually an interesting company keeping the industry moving, with the spirit of 80's hacker culture. Even though most of their "achievements" were stolen, like the GUI from Xerox.
But eventually they got complacent like any company that made it, and stopped trying. But because the industry is full of lemmings retards, people perpetually still copy them with the misconception Apple haven't changed. So you have the lazy and complacent greed, leading the uninspired.

You are correct in theory but also manage to make a stretch out of it. The way they written it suggests your average last gen - current gen comparison with everything being the same. Though in the end, yeah, gotta see real benchmarks to be sure.

Which is perfectly reasonable if it boosts there for a short period of time. The 15W is the average, so if you're rendering a movie on it, it might jump to 60W, throttle to 10W, be at 30W at parts, and so on, but the average will be the 15W.

Wrong, total peak performance is determined mainly due to cooling and power. Gaybook Air are limited in both aspects so winning against them is not a huge thing. The evidence is the Linus Shill Tips video where they improved the Gaybook air cooling and gained 20% performance but still lagged behing the U chips due to the low 10w power.

why do icucks suddenly care about performance? you were all about muh user experience life matters, fuck orange benchmarks when $3000 mbp had chromebook-tier performance...
the M1 is a SoC, everything is scattered accross the board AND MORE IMPORTANTLY EVERYTHING IS SOLDERED
this means no ram upgrade, no storage upgrade, no cpu upgrade, no gpu upgrade, no m2 slot or sata ports, you have to buy a whole new system every time...
tell me this is an upgrade over a typical computer with easy to swap components
they can't say in october that they care about muh planet then glue together everything and control the entire stack, this is not possible to hold both position at the same without being hypocritical
I won't start talking about anti-dev practices because I would need more than the remaining 900 chars I have left in this post

the all-in-one world is a few step closer to an orwellien-like dystopia, I'm surprise to see so many americans supporting apple dictatorial behavior, germans had more rights in 39-45 than apple cuckstumers, what happened to the land of the free to accept such cuckoldry...

Could only find stuff for A9X, and it performs worse than in old gookbench at unzipping but it's hard to tell how much it matters when the chip just wasn't laptop tier at that point either way.

It does so at the huge cost of quality. We've had this on computers for a while now. We refer to it as NVENC from nvidia, FMA from AMD, and quicksync from intel. All of them result in 4-10X higher bitrate for the same quality as as a high quality sw encode. The exception is turing nvenc which has b-frames so it only requires 2-4X higher bitrate.

Phones in large part have the fastest but the lowest quality of these hw encodes so they end up requiring 10X higher bitrate for the same quality as a SW encode. This means that phone 100Mbps (~50GB/hour) HEVC 4K video has the same quality as 10Mbps (~5GB/hour) HEVC 4K video.

Because? I literally never had to repair any computer I ever owned in decades. Even outside of the Applel world. Even if I had something dying now, the time spent on fixing shit isn't worth it, even if you delegate it.

Upgrades outside of GPU are kinda a poorfag cope either way because you didn't want to pony up on the right RAM size or SSD capacity at start, and it's not like you can upgrade a GPU on a laptop either way.

>> No.78653121

Because it's literally made to break and be obsolete? How the fuck is that acceptable?
>upgrades are a poorfag cope
Yeah because I don't want to get Jewed by the manufacturer for whatever bullshit price they want to charge. I have to max out anything I buy in terms of storage, RAM, CPU etc. at the start thanks to this bullshit. When it inevitably breaks, there's no way to recover data off of it, use the parts for anything else, or fix it. It might be okay if I bought a laptop every two fucking years, but I don't.
>not like you can upgrade gpu in a laptop
We fucking could have. Google MxM. It was an absolute failure because retards like you don't want actual good computers.
>does everything most people want to do
Everything Apple dictates is acceptable. You don't own your Macbook, you're renting it from Apple, and especially with things like T2 and the new ARM SoCs. You do everything the Apple way and you deal with it. Instead of just buying cheap RAM and upgrading or fixing it myself I have to do everything Apple's way like they somehow have a right to my hardware after I've paid them for it. This shit is absolutely unacceptable, but it's where all computers are going to be in 20 years, because of people like you, and I hope you're happy.

When Apple and Microsoft inevitably switch to thin clients and you have to rent all performance from the cloud, you are still going to be justifying this shit because it "does what most people want".

That's literally 12" Macbook. Hence I called it peak laptop. There is nothing you can really take away from it. Now they can even revive it without performance penalties (although it was surprisingly decent even back then)
>I literally never ever used force touch.
It can serve as a third mouse button like clicking on the wheel. Besides that part is the most boring one. A trackpad you can click everywhere that doesn't move AND gives you the impression it does, is some sci fi shit that barely got any credit for its utter perfection.
>because other lowly manufacturers are nearly catching up and in some ways even handily beating them in terms of wow factor.
Which just seems given. The laptop form factor peaked. More performance/battery life, lighter/thinner and smaller bezels is all there is realistically left. Now others finally went to a respectable aspect ratio, Applel can't even excel there.

Of course. For most people who buy it, it will be exactly the product they need. What CPU-intensive tasks does the average normie even do? Video encoding is like the only one, and that's handled by hw encoding.
