Apple walks Ars through the iPad Pro’s A12X system on a chip

Ars Technica:

After the hardware announcements last week, Ars sat down with Anand Shimpi from Hardware Technologies at Apple and Apple’s Senior VP of Marketing Phil Schiller to ask. We wanted to hear exactly what Apple is trying to accomplish by making its own chips and how the A12X is architected. It turns out that the iPad Pro’s striking, console-level graphics performance and many of the other headlining features in new Apple devices (like FaceID and various augmented-reality applications) may not be possible any other way.

I’m not smart enough to understand much of what this article is about but the majority of the reviews of this new iPad reference how incredibly powerful the A12X system on a chip is.
