Two young Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak started Apple in a garage on April 1, 1976.
As the company grew over the years, the Mac team grew larger and larger, and Jobs wanted to maintain its original rebellious spirit, even as it became more and more like a regular navy.In August 1983, the Mac team moved to a larger office space.The Mac team wanted to make their mark because the place was so bland.Steve Capps, who came from the Lisa team, had an idea: if the Mac team were a bunch of pirates, then the building should have a pirate flag on it, symbolizing Apple’s Think Different.
Of course, with Apple on track to become a giant, the spirit of rebellion seems to be rarely spoken about.
By last night, at apple’s last online event of the year, the company’s rebellious spirit and sense of humor were back.
At WWDC in June, Apple announced its decision to switch its Mac back to apple chips.And the event announced that the first new ARM Mac will be unveiled by the end of the year.
Even the preview of the press conference is One More Thing.
It took Apple less than 45 minutes to unveil 3 More Things.
The all-new MacBook Air, the all-new 13-inch MacBook Pro, and the all-new Mac Mini have been announced for pre-order today and officially go on sale next week.
The significance of self-research chip
At the start of the event, the M1 chip was unveiled directly.The 5-nanometer process, with 16 billion transistors, is Apple’s strongest self-developed chip to date.
The M1 chip, according to Apple officials, runs apple’s fastest CPU and integrated graphics card.
The 8-core CPU consists of four high-performance cores and four energy-efficient cores.Each high performance core provides excellent single-threaded task processing performance and minimizes power consumption to the extent allowed.Even four energy efficient cores offer similar performance to the existing dual-core MacBook Air, but consume only one-tenth as much power.
The GRAPHICS processing GPU also has eight cores, can run nearly 25,000 threads simultaneously, and has data processing capacity of 2.6 teraflops.With such performance enhancement, multiple 4K video streams can be played smoothly and complex 3D scenes can be rendered. Compared with other models using high-performance integrated graphics CARDS, the performance is improved by a full 6 times.
With a 16-core neural network engine, the machine learns 15 times faster.There are also the latest ISPs (image signal processors), the latest hardware security partitions, storage controllers, low-power media encoding and decoding engines, and SUPPORT for USB 4.
