Apple M1 (ARM) architecture demos

console can be "demo platform" if you hack it, install linux there, and made your own graphic driver and API for that GPU it has

Now you're just pushing the cost towards the end-user - rarely a good strategy.


(until someone puts it in a neat package à la letterbomb for the wii)

I was about to make a comment about how convincing someone to google "Letterbomb" is surely gonna make them endear to your idea of "neat", but then I realized the fact that you have to somehow also convince them to find out their MAC address which is probably even worse when all you tried to convince them of is to watch a demo.

(But sure, Windows demos and DLLs.)

I have no experience with any Apple products, but something tells me that these spectacular benchmark numbers wont translate into real world performance under real payload.

I have ported some of my software to ARM for a while, there was always a magnitude of difference in favor of x86 chips despite of similarities in synthetic benchmarks (at the same power consumption class).

I know Apple redesigned the whole core, but even with their well-pipelined superscalar design i have doubts about it.

I know some people who got one already (and definitely not all apple fans, far from), and they definitely *are* fast, even in real-world scenarios.

(it's printed on the sticker on the bottom of the console, and also can be found in the network settings menu)
