Poll: New iPad Pro as powerful as Xbox One S. Should MS be terrified? (84 votes)

Maybe 18%
Not really 82%

Assassin's Creed..... Rebellion. 120 FPS.

NBA 2K console quality graphics with pinholes rendered jerseys! Almost 6 million pixels no upscaling. 60 FPS.

"New experience that rivals consoles for the very first time!"

:)

Apple et al were doing the ones doing the comparisons.

See you don't act like this when the topic is about the PS4..Hahahaha

You can't help it..

I would of said the samething if it would of said PS4 . You see I put a part about the Switch in there also. Damn you are just an idiot.

The OP was comparing a tablet device to a home console that sales for 4 to 5 times as much. But keep creating those false narratives you are good for it!

You don't have the right to call someone an idiot when you write sentences like "I would of said the samething if it would of said PS4". You also missed the sarcasm in the OP's post, just like your other lem pals did. So much outrage for a sarcastic post.

For one I wrote that at work on my cell phone Mr. Perfection. I am sure you have never made a mistake or typo while writing on a forum. huh?

Also that was not sarcasm. You need to know the history between me and Tormentos before saying anything. Idiot!

So somehow your grammar gets worse when you type on a phone? That's a shitty excuse.

Here you are again calling people idiots while not being able to properly read what's right in front of your eyes. The OP isn't Tormentos, so your history between you and him is completely irrelevant. Maybe you'll be able to write a more intelligent post with your third try.

How do you know? You're certainly not part of that clique.

Shhh kid, like I said grown folks are talking

Well, see? You're writing, so obviously you're not part of the grown folks.

Also, only kids think "kid" is some kind of insult, further proving your mental age.

Let's make this more interesting.

The new iPad Pro beats regular o'l PCs, annihilates mobile competition.

Tom's Guide bringing the compelling stuff. Not just synthetic benchmarks this time, friends.

So a $800 dollar tablet in 2018 still can't beat the base PS4 from 2013. Tablets have a ways to go.

I think Apple is more catered towards Media production and consumption. Gaming is an accessory for them, so far... I just can't seem imagine an Apple game devision.

Sold my 1st gen 12.9 ipad pro with pencil for $650 last weekend after these were announced to fund the new one. Can't wait till Wednesday to pick it up. Wonder how the a12x's gpu measures up to the gtx1050 on my surface book 2.

Nice. How much was the capacity that you've sold? Where did you sell it?

Could you please do some throttling tests once you get yours and post here or PM me?

If it had built in joycons like the Switch does then I would think this is kinda cool.....but even then it’s gonna be wayyyy more money than a modern console. I’d rather use that money and get a ps4, xbone, and switch.

Transcoding via specific ASIC decoder/encoder units are useless for games.

http://www.notebookcheck.net/A12X-Bionic-vs-A12-Bionic_10881_10166.247596.0.html

3DMark - Ice Storm Unlimited Physics 1280x720 offscreen

27413 points median

----------

AMD Athlon 5350 has quad core Jaguar at 2.05 Ghz. CPU physics score is 23,546 which is slightly superior to Intel Atom Z3580 at 2.3 Ghz's 20,977. AMD ZEN doubles Jaguar's IPC and math unit resources.

Two Athlon 5350 has quad core Jaguar modules could yield 47,092 points.

Apple's progress is getting closer. Both AMD and Intel should view Apple as a competitor in the hardware space.

In 80s, Apple has designed their own graphics chipsets.

@rzxv04: was the 256GB one; posted it on craigslist (Cheshire, CT area) in the morning and got a few responses , shuffled through the obvious scammy ones and got lucky with a very local reply that was like 15 mins away and sold it that afternoon. I like to think she got a good deal, threw in the camera adapter since it wont work with new ipad, along with an apple smart cover and silicone case as well as the apple 29w charger.

@ronvalencia: I know it. I only linked the article I did because we got to see an iPad measurably outperform a regular o’l computer doing real work style tasks.

I have no illusions about how capable it is at pushing pixels relative to much larger, more centrally focused, and actively cooled piece of gaming hardware. But like you said, Apple is coming...

Kudos on that link, big fan of that website.

Edit—I’m going to be interested in seeing how the A12X benchmarks there. The A12 does well as you demonstrated, but the A12X should have considerably more oomph.

A12X is already using 7nm process tech while AMD (currently at 12 nm and 14 nm) and Intel (currently at 10 nm) has yet to switch towards 7 nm.

AMD switches to 7 nm process tech early next year.

Why MS?!? Why not Nintendo and Sony?

I get Apple and MS are sworn enemies, and definitely would like to ruin Xbox (probably most online hate of Xbox is coming from iMac/iPhone users), and likely cause Apple nerds are getting spank'd by Google and MS products like Galaxy and Surface.

I'd love for tablet gaming to become consoles, and iPad vs Surface be main competitors, and hell, I own a iPad and dream of owning a Surface, cause it has Win10 and could play actual games on it, instead of being subdued by just an app store. I don't know what people would use with all that power on an iPad...of course a ton of great games in app store, you're just not playing Forza or Gears.
