Apple's iPad Pro & powerful A9X CPU pose threat to Intel, Cowen says
Apple's iPad Pro & powerful A9X CPU pose threat to Intel, Cowen says A look at the GPU shows a similar story: The A9X outperformed all Apple laptops that use integrated Intel graphics, registering a three-to-four-times improvement in frame rate of the 12-inch MacBook with Retina display. The iPad Pro processor also posted an improvement of as much as 40 percent over the Intel Iris 5200 integrated graphics featured on the 15-inch MacBook Pro.
Now all we need is an installer for OSX on the iPad Pro and I'll be a happy camper. I never was a fan of Intel integrated graphics. I personally believe Steve Jobs would never have shipped a Pro MacBook without a real GPU.
