Comments on: Nvidia to Apple: thanks for the backhanded compliment http://blogs.reuters.com/mediafile/2012/03/07/nvidia-to-apple-thanks-for-the-backhanded-compliment/ Where media and technology meet Wed, 16 Nov 2016 08:48:25 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Regin http://blogs.reuters.com/mediafile/2012/03/07/nvidia-to-apple-thanks-for-the-backhanded-compliment/#comment-391874 Tue, 13 Mar 2012 16:30:00 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/mediafile/?p=34076#comment-391874 It will be interesting to see how NVIDIA’s Tegra 3 (4xPrimary CPU cores, 1xLowPower CPU, 12xGPUs) performs against the apple A5X (2xCPUs, 4xGPUs) when someone does side by side testing of both a variety of benchmarks and applications.

I’m sure Apple could do one benchmark that does not make good use of multiple processors and get better results. How about a benchmark or application that makes good use of all processors (2 or 4)? For example, there are applications designed just for the Tegra processor (Tegra Zone) to make use of all that computing power.

A graphic intensive application such as a game or video/photo processing optimized for the Tegra 3 will likely kick ass over an application optimized for the A5X.
