Apple Watch Series 4 power equals iPhone 6s

When we compare the differentials of the Apple Watch Series 4 in relation to the Series 3, we say that the new S4 processor of the watch is up to 2x faster. It is a Silicon in Package (SiP) complete, that is, an entire system made in a single component (incorporating several functionalities in a very small space). According to Apple, we are facing something so advanced that the Apple Watch is the only product in the world that works exclusively with SiP technology.

But is his performance really that much better compared to the Series 3? Well, according to the developer Steve Troughton-Smith, Yes:

To test the capabilities of the S4, Steve decided to create a demo using Apple's Metal API. We are talking about a Physics-based rendering, in real time, running at 60 frames per second. And the watch didn't even blink as he rolled it.

More than that: the demo did not even tickle the CPU, as we can see in the image above. According to Steve, I need an iPhone 6s or higher to get similar performance on the Apple smartphone with this app he created. In other words: inside a 40mm watch (the smallest version of it), Apple managed to put the processing power of a recent iPhone!

Definitely Apple has become one of the largest and most successful chip makers in the world. My opinion? it's only a matter of time before we see Ma's processors fully embracing the Mac line to Intel so take care!
