Hot Takes Today, Claim Chowder Tomorrow
A thorough review, as usual. Interesting to contrast with Dylan Patel’s much-publicized “Apple CPU Gains Grind to a Halt and the Future Looks Dim” hot take last month, just after the Apple event.
To summarize the situation:
- Apple announces the A15 chip and compares it to competitors, not themselves as they have in the past.
- Many assume this means it’s not an upgrade over the A14
- Dots are connected to show how this is a systemic issue with Apple’s silicon team.
- Days pass.
- Actually, the A15 is a beast and a notable improvement over the A14 in power and energy use.
