The iPad Pro is here, and it comes with a lot of promises. The most-repeated is that its A9X chip is a desktop-class processor that fits inside a tablet. Initial benchmark results confirm that this is by far the most powerful chip Apple has ever put inside an iPad, leading some to suggest that Apple's A9X is now at the same level as Intel's laptop chips. This could change the PC and laptop industry forever, apparently, with popular Apple commentators suggesting that "the future belongs to ARM, and Apple's A-series SoC's are leading the way." To put it lightly, that's a bit premature.
