Today, Apple brought the power of its new M1 SoC to the completely redesigned iMac, and now the chip is leaping the iPad Pro. With the M1 onboard, this is now the most powerful iPad Pro ever, with a 50 percent uplift in CPU performance combined with a 40 percent boost in GPU performance. While the move from A-Series SoCs to M1 is big news, perhaps the most significant addition is a new Liquid Retina XDR Display on the 12.9-inch model. The display uses 10,000 mini-LEDs for precise local dimming, offering a 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio and 1,600 nits peak brightness. Unfortunately, the new 11-inch iPad Pro is stuck with the same display technology as the previous generation model. Other features... Read more...
According to Rambus, Samsung Electronics plans to offer a 1 Gigabit XDR DRAM memory device. As a result of this development, Rambus' technology may finally start to see more widespread availability. The XDR memory architecture is interesting because it achieves performance that is higher than would be attainable by current mainstream memory modules. "Samsung's market leadership means system manufacturers can be assured of a reliable supply of our XDR DRAM," said Sharon Holt, senior vice president of Licensing and Marketing at Rambus. "With XDR memory's world-leading bandwidth performance, designers can meet their system requirements with fewer devices and greater power efficiency." Rambus' memory... Read more...
