...and why does ARM have to be 20% faster if it is consumes 80% less power? Do most users max out their CPU usage? What common tasks fully utilize a CPU? Encoding is not that common.
Even everyday usage maxes out the CPU. Browsers playing a decent video maxes them out. A couple of apps running in the background with nothing more than a browser can use quite a considerable amount of your CPU.

Like 10%?

But I'm saying that we are in the Rumers and Unconfirmed Articles forum here on OCN, so that's the context here.

I mean, the location of this thread implies that this article is either a rumor or an unconfirmed story. Either way, the context dictates that we aren't to take this absolutely seriously.

Now, it would be a completely different story if this were posted in the Technology and Science News forum.

I have very little doubt that this is actually going to happen. Now if it came from what I consider a reliable source such as BBC, Engadget, TUAW etc.. then I would believe it.

If you read the article you will see that it is still 2-3 years out, which is the point of my post. Apple will require about a year worth of in house testing before they support the new systems.

2-3 years is forever in the cpu market place only to catch up where intel is today.

But thank you for the insult.
If so, then why did you bring up 64-bit? ARM-64 will be avaliable in the time frame of the rumored conversion.


Also, 99% of the mobile market does require more CPU performance than what was avaliable 1-2 years ago. ARM does not have to catch up to Intel's future performance.

This article is Charlie.... he was from the INQ and has provided inside information previously. A lot of people don't like him or his style but he has been right.

What are you talking about? Go look at resource utilization better.

GPU video acceleration will be near universal in 1-2 years. CPU utilization playing 1080p with offloading is maybe 50% peak on a dual-core x86 at 2GHz.

What "couple of apps running in the background" are you talking about? Unless they are actively processing, they are mostly just residing in memory wait for user interaction.

Proof? I'm running word, another program (can't say), a youtube video, and surfing on here at less that 10% usage per core. Bottom line - average use does NOT dictate that type of processor load.

Prove it.

(Note, your GPU does not provide video off-loading)

Back when I had a 500 MHz Pentium III, my CPU usage would easily exceed 50% with just basic usage, like web browsing in Firefox in Windows XP.

Then I got an E2180 which of course is a 2.0 GHz Core2 Duo. The first thing I noticed was that I had to actually put a lot of effort forth in order to get the CPU usage to exceed 20-30% while just doing my usual thing (hey, it was fun).

Then I upgraded to the E8400, and it became even harder to get my CPU usage to exceed like 20% with just my normal routine.

Yes, of course I can get it to 100% at times, but it's not like it stays at more than 50% for any length of time unless I'm doing something a bit more CPU-intensive for an extended period of time.

So when you say "80%", are you talking about spikes to 80%? Or are you talking about sustained CPU usage? I mean yeah, of course it depends on what you're doing...
