Apple CPU vs. Intel CPU.. Fight!

The apple watch runs iOS too, just slower, but it’s an ARM chip. So no it isn’t that.

I guess they could be taking advantage of economies of scale. They don’t sell many apple watches.

Might be an attempt to make hackintosh systems harder to setup. Seems like overkill though.

I wonder if FaceID would use the A10x chip and that is why they are using it.

I can’t think of any hardware I’m less excited about than a fucking crapdragon, but running Windows x86 on ARM continues to be interesting!

Nah. Not if they start at $600. It’s a complete non-starter, particularly if they ever charge for that Windows S to full-fat upgrade.
