    I wanted to open this discussion since now the biggest leap forward in technology was Apple announcing there new Apple silicon with the new m1 chip.

    Arm chips that are less power consuming and hyper powerful without the need of fans… plus be able yo use iPad/iPhone apps.

    I wanted to know what you guys think of this if it will be the future and Microsoft and Google will follow along.

    I am not a big fan of Apple. That’s my issue, They are not producing anything that I am able to buy in my budget.

    Google is making their products like smartphones into the mid premium and premium segment, this too is a bit out of reach for me.

    I had used Microsoft windows phones before, they had one for every segment including the lowest budget segment. They were pretty good.

    Now coming to the processor, we can see heavy leaps in processing power by almost everyone soon. So far Qualcomm Snapdragon is the major player (even if Apple has a better performing chip), but MediaTek is catching up with their Dimensity chips, there’s HiSilicon Kirin, Samsung Exynos, and there are some small players like Unisoc.

    @binil Thanks for the comment.

    The iPhone SE is a good $300 with latest processor. So in that end apple is trying to do more for all segments. Tim Cook put more phones to sell than Steve jobs did so should be good to improve the segments even if is more complicated now with mini, regular and pro…

    To be honest the latest keynote was good on the M1 max with 64gb ram and even the gpu is amazing.

    Is a Great Leap Forward and other companies are all thinking more about arm even intel itself is doing the change soon.

    @littlething – please stop using one liners.


    @kreesher
    – the current Motorola series like Moto G31, then Redmi Note 11 series from Mi are huge VFM products.

    Some years ago there was phones based on Intel chips (Intel was offering Intel Atom chips for smartphones from 2011 to around 2014) – so are they coming back?

    @binil maybe I think intel is also using tsmc like apple to do some chips so they could come back to get a percentage of the phone market

    Intel and AMD have no choice but to enter the smartphone market soon in the future as both laptop and desktops numbers are on the fall.

    Intel and AMD are doing a good job in there new cpus and gpus to be honest I think Apple will have to race a bit more to create better arm and maybe the pro to have dedicated gpu to be better on rendering
