  1. What would be neat is if the new  13" MacBook Pros would use the massive thermal headroom gained from switching to ARM would be used to add dGPUs. 


    ARM GPUs are great at performance per watt, its just that their overall performance is pretty trash.

      Just to chime in about the 6s though...that thing only had 2GB of RAM. So there's a lot of memory swapping and writing be done for extended recording sessions.

      @nerdslayer1 the A13 already competes with some macbooks, the A12Z does for sure. there is no need to scale up. a macbook with the same cpu as the ipad pro will be very fast.

      @Ashley xD in theory, but the 12Z on the 11 inch pro 2020  is better, especially in sustained workload.  GPU wise, its in another league. yes, they will need to scale up to run proper mac OS, i padOS is still at its infancy.  luma fusion is very dumb due to its limitation, testing fortnite, it ran at 70 fps, dropped down to 30 at times overall, so apple needs to bring out something that can actually compete with its intel counterparts. 


      a full desktop OS that will run apps like FCX and Xcode needs a lot more power, so much faster chips are needed. 



      at the end of the day, GPU is what apple will focus on, CPU wise, they can just add more cores but GPU is a whole other game.
