Batman: I'm very sad. I might have to ditch windows. I need light and low power and all day battery life. This will be the death of Windows.

 

 

 

Rejoice! Come into the light, brother! Be saved!

I honestly doubt smb is any sort of priority. I'm not saying your wrong, macOS is very slow with the likes of DFS, but things are moving to the likes of OneDrive/Google Drive/Dropbox, or AFP it's probably not seen as something to invest a bunch of time into.

I am happy with both, but I have to say, my 9 year old iMac is still going strong, where I never had a Windows machine that was capable of lasting beyond maybe 3-5 years and would be treacle-slow by that age. 

 

 

Improperly written apps cause a lot of problems. A clean install is often the solution. I still frequently use a 12 year old core2 quad and it's quite usable.

 

My colleague received a replacement imac recently and that was welcomely received due to the slow down in his 5 year old unit.

 

I still have questions about how this new processor will both save power and keep up the FLOPs. How many cores and whats the manufacturing process ?

 

 

The current A12X is six cores from memory. I'd say they'll go down a similar route with new silicone.

The A12 is 6, the A12X is 8.

They're going to need a more marketable name than 'a14x' or similar. I suggest:

ICrunch
Icompute
IReckon
AppleCore
