Instead of 10x by the number was now 25x. But there has been a fundamental shift since Great graphics performance is required, but it isn't sufficient anymore. If you look at what users are demanding, they are demanding an increasingly good experience, robust experience, across the spectrum of visual computing. Users care about everything they see on the screen, not just 3D graphics. And so delivering a great visual experience requires media performance of all types: in games, in video playback, in video transcoding, in media editing, in 3D graphics, and in display.
And Intel is committed to delivering leadership platforms in visual computing, not just in PCs, but across the continuum. Even after this keynote Intel made a lot of adjustments to its roadmap, heavily influenced by Apple. As fond as Apple has been of using discrete GPUs in notebooks, it would rather get rid of them if at all possible.
For many SKUs Apple has already done so. Haswell and Broadwell will allow Apple to bring integration to even some of the Pro-level notebooks. At x most interactions are smooth but things like zooming windows or scrolling on certain web pages is clearly subfps. At the higher scaled resolutions, since the GPU has to render as much as 9. But there are other limitations: many elements of screen drawing are still done on the CPU, and as largely serial architectures their ability to scale performance with dramatically higher resolutions is limited.
Throw a more complex website at it and things get bad quickly. Facebook combines a lot of compressed images with text - every single image is decompressed on the CPU before being handed off to the GPU. Combine that with other elements that are processed on the CPU and you get a recipe for choppy scrolling. Scrolling in Safari on the rMBP - 21 fps. The good news is Mountain Lion provides some relief. Facebook is still a challenge because of the mixture of CPU decoded images and a standard web page, but the experience is a bit better.
There are no rough or fuzzy edges at all. So much detail is preserved that if you take a photo of a signpost and add it to your iPhoto library, you can read the text in the photo's preview. Throw in a degree viewing angle, the inch MacBook Pro with Retina screen looks good from wherever you look at it. But don't take our word for it. Go to your local Apple store, take a look at a standard MacBook Pro screen, then at the Retina display. The difference is amazing. Being based on flash storage means the inch MacBook Pro with Retina display is extremely quick to start up.
Its SSD has up to four times the bandwidth of a standard hard drive, managing sequential read speeds of up to MBps. Applications open quicker, files transfer faster and your Mac feels snappier and more responsive. We streamed the BBC iPlayer's news channel at full screen over a Wi-Fi network for four hours, 35 minutes on a fully-charged battery, which is very good considering this is a very demanding test.
You can put the Retina MacBook into standby mode simply by closing the lid; open it again, and it's instantly on in exactly the same state as when you closed it. It can last for up to a month in this standby mode.
The picture will look pixelated. So in my opinion, what Jobs said was fine. Soneira, while technically correct, was being picky. However, near visual acuity is usually poor due to presbyopia  in nearly everyone over 40, such that decreasing reading distance can actually reduce perceivable resolution.
This was an isolated case for the platform however, as all other Symbian-based devices had larger displays with lower resolutions. Some older Symbian smartphones, including the Nokia N80 and N90 , featured a 2. The first Android smartphones with the same display - Meizu M9 was launched a few months later in beginning of In October of the same year Galaxy Nexus was announced, which had a display with a better resolution.
Aside from resolution, all generations of iPhone Retina displays receive high ratings for other aspects such as brightness and color accuracy, compared to those of contemporary smartphones, while some Android devices such as the LG G3 have sacrificed screen quality and battery life for high resolution. Ars Technica suggested the "superfluousness of so many flagship phone features—the move from p to p to p and beyond From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
