No, I meant what I said. I think the data backs it up. ARM has been routinely delivering IPC gains in the 20-30% range for a while, now. That is much faster than x86 cores have been improving, for a long time.I would phrase it a bit different.
I guess you didn't see where I quoted that "we see that the A12 outperforms a moderately-clocked Skylake CPU in single-threaded performance".But laptops are not the place where you don't care about single core performance as a lot of software is older and will be absolutely murdered by that change.
That's from post #17. You replied to #20. Please try a little harder.
With ARM's power-efficiency advantage, it might in fact be the AIR series that has the most to gain.If they change AIR series, it should be fine, nobody sane uses it to work.
According to the article, developers can already get a Mac Mini with Apple Silicon. If interested, we should be able to find some reporting on their impressions, soon if not already. Apple also reportedly demonstrated a bunch of software running on it, at the event.I am not mentioning desktops, that would be a hilarious choice for first wave.
Wow. Where to start?BTW this is most powerful supercomputer (is ARM BASED). by simple proportions it uses like ~13% more cores to get same performance. It's what you're loosing on single core speed for ability to scale, especially that at this scale x86 solutions already degrade, so I expect ~25% on single core speed in laptop scale is to be expected.

First, you're mixing up GPU and CPU performance. So, that data is quite simply irrelevant to anything we're discussing - Summit gets its main FLOPS from Nvidia V100 GPUs. Even the performance of Fugaku (which is impressively 100% CPUs - no GPUs or other accelerators at play) is irrelevant to this discussion, since it's using SVE which is good for HPC workloads but probably won't show up in mobile cores.
Second, it's using custom Fujitsu-designed ARM cores, so it's like using data about a system made with VIA x86 chips to say something about AMD CPUs.
Third, Summit uses POWER CPUs. So, it's not even relating to x86, as you claim.
