I also want to see more comment on the A6 chip and see how Apple can achieve better user experience.

Welcome back to the forum, Frank. Yes, that's exactly what we are hoping to find out. I can't wait for Paul Boldt and Don Scansen et al to finish the A6 teardown!

We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
