@Au_equus, I seriously doubt that. MXM has max tdp of 100w I believe. So the m295x should have the same tdp as the m290x.
Supposedly AMD has had these more efficient chips for 3 months now, just waiting for existing inventory to sell out. I think the huge efficiency increase we saw with nvidia is at the greatly improved 28nm process, so AMD should have access to the same efficiency improvement.
Seems like the usual "better than last year" product release. The iPad Mini 3 in particular is very unimpressive. Seems like an iPad Mini 2 with a Touch ID. Yay?
That said, very curious about this 5K display—particularly the custom timing chip Apple designed for it. $2500 is too expensive for me... but hopefully someone will do an in-depth exploration of this new display at some point.
Not bad. As a student I'm starting to see the appeal behind the iPAD for taking notes, carrying my books and such around on it. I might go for a 32GB version just to lighten the load in school and have an all in one study solution. A bit Pricey though.
Apple is not in trouble financially, but when the current gen of zombies begin to slow their repetitive purchases and consumers become more aware of the degree to which they over pay for the whole suite of products, their naked over branding without substance may finally become more apparent to a world that is at the moment still unwilling to see it.
Yeah, totally agree. Like those dickheads who buy exotic sports cars, super yachts and luxury mansions.
Don't they know my Datsun Sunny on retreads can carry my dingy on the roof, all the way from my trailer to the local swamp. Yeah, pfft, morons!
$$$ generally translates into quality except when you are paying for equivalent hardware, alternative software, and no real advantage. Apple is a capatlist wet-dream, but consumer nightmare. People need to wake-up.
New iPad air 2 and iPad mini 3 ,are thinner and more powerful than ever. They all now incorporate Touch ID, which allows users to unlock their iPad with a simple touch of the finger, and soon give them the opportunity to make secure purchases via Apple Pay.
