  • The Snapdragon 8cx gen 4 is 32% faster than Apple's M4, at least on one benchmark.  (WCCFTech)

    Of course, neither chip is out yet, so take that with a sack of salt.

    But it does look like the commodity Arm market is finally shaking off the dust and competing seriously with Intel and AMD for laptop parts.


  • Meanwhile Arm announced an entire family of new cores, with 40% better performance, making them 15% faster.  (AnandTech)

    The catch there is that mobile chips come with a mix of fast, power-hungry cores, and slower more efficient cores.  It's the slower cores that are 40% faster, and the faster cores are only 15% faster.  That fast core - the Cortex X4 - is alternatively 40% more efficient for the same performance, but expect phone manufacturers to take the 15% and sacrifice your battery.

    But the mid-tier and low-end A720 and A520 cores are both faster and more efficient, so if you're in the market for a $500 phone - or a $250 one - rather than a $1000 model, things look a bit brighter.

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