Not always. Their remarks about Haswell being suited for tablets have been way off the mark, and they didn't even realize those 10W would be FAR weaker chips than what we have in ultrabooks today. I'm thinking sub-1 Ghz chips here - that still cost like $200+, which is as much as the entire BOM for the iPad.
ZomZom, whats with the stupid link to insurance sales ?
The rumoured powerVr core, although not having the same theoritical Gflops performance for compute applications, will have a better fill rate and similar graphical performance otherwise, as the ipad4.
If the rumour is true, then it would appear that Arm did not have a graphics solution available that could compete with this. Even their much shouted about T604 is only getting approx 2/3 graphics performance of the ipad4 chip.
