Still Splut Edition

Top Story

  • This just in: Silicon Valley Bank is still splut.

  • No, Apple's A17 Bionic mobile CPU is not going to be 59% faster in single-threaded performance than the A16.  (WCCFTech)

    As a rule of thumb, CPU performance rises with the square root of the issue width, and complexity and transistor count (and also power consumption) rises with the square of the issue width, so to increase performance by 59% without increasing the clock speed Apple would need to make a chip more than six times larger using six times the power.

    Increasing the clock speed by the same amount would have similar effects on power consumption.

    And both approaches have limits where requirements zoom off the charts for minimal gains.  You can see this in existing chips, where the 170W Ryzen 7900X is only 7% faster than the 65W 7900 non-X model.

    This supposed leak is garbage.

Apple pies are delicious. But never mind apple pies. What colour is a green orange?
