I agree with much of your article but I'm not sure about your statement on Apple's GPU which is simply a PowerVR chip. Advances in HBM and efficiency in Maxwell makes me think that GPU is the ONLY area Apple won't be able to design/compete for another 5 years or more.

Now, if Apple releases a 64bit A72+ class CPU on Samsung 14nm fab with a 512core Nvidia Maxwell GPU in the new 12in Macbook with Retina, I'd jump at it.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
