지금까지 일반적인 인식은 아이폰 (iPhone)과 아이팟 터치 (iPod Touch)가 동일한 플랫폼이라는 것이었으나, 게임들이 점점 기기의 성능활용을 극대화하기 시작하면서, 두 기기간의 차이가 있다는 것이 점점 명확해지고 있습니다.

Handheld Games Corp.의 CEO Thomas Fessler가 최근 터치 아케이드 (Touch Arcade)에 보고한 바에 의하면 자사의 3D TouchSports Tennis 게임이 (현재 App Store에서 4.99불에 구입 가능함.) 두 기기에서 눈에 띄는 차이를 보인다고 합니다.

TouchSports Tennis 게임은 놀라운 3D 렌더링 (영상)을 보여주며 모든 기기에서 안정된 실행이 가능하도록 최적화가 되어 있습니다.

아래는 보고 내용을 인용한 것입니다.
---------------------------------
fps (초당 프레임수) 성능을 증가시키기 위해 우리가 가장 먼저 한 일은 하드웨어에 따라 차별적인 디테일을 부여하는 것이었습니다. 2세대 아이팟 터치에서는 훌륭하게 구현되는 1500 폴리곤과 32개의 관절을 가진 테니스 선수들의 게임 동작이, 기존의 1세대 아이팟 터치에서는 끊기는 경우가 있으며 이는 아이폰에서도 마찬가지로 일어납니다.
터치의 속도를 높이기 위해 원거리 시점의 선수들에는 800 폴리곤만을 사용하고, 가까이서 볼 때는 1000 폴리곤을 사용하여 기존의 아이팟 터치가 아이폰 3G에 가까운 게임 성능을 발휘할 수 있게 하였습니다. 이 방법을 통하여 상당히 훌륭한 결과를 얻었습니다.
---------------------------------
가장 큰 차이는 2세대 아이팟 터치의 프로세서가 기존 1세대의 412MHz에서 532MHz로 확 올라갔다는 것입니다. 반면에 아이폰 3G와 기존의 아이폰, 그리고 1세대 터치는 412MHz로 여전히 동작합니다. 의도한 바는 아니지만, Handheld Games Corp의 비디오를 보면 2세대 아이팟 터치의 응용 프로그램 로딩 시간이 기존 1세대에 비해 눈에 띄게 개선된 것을 알 수 있습니다.

하지만 동일한 속도로 동작하는 기기간 (2세대 터치를 제외한 나머지?)에도 성능에 차이가 있기 때문에, 이게 전부가 아닐지도 모릅니다.

3D 렌더링 속도를 기준으로 현재 빠른 순으로 나열해 본 결과는 아래와 같습니다. 2세대 아이팟이 현재 가장 빠른 것으로 나타났습니다.

1위: iPod Touch 2nd Generation
2위: iPhone 3G
3위: iPhone (original)
4위: iPod Touch 1st Generationㅇ

Fessler에 따르면, 이 글에서 언급한 게임의 3D 그래픽의 무거움을 생각하면, 아직 명확한 증거는 없지만, GPU 속도에도 변화가 있을지도 모른다고 합니다.
Fessler는 심지어는 (현재까지 밝혀진 바를 바탕으로 말하는 듯.) 오락을 목적으로 한다면 1세대 아이팟 터치를 구입하는 것은 피하라고 말했습니다.ㅎㅎ

윈도우 모바일용 CrossPlatform Palm 에뮬레이터를 개밯하는 StyleTap은 iPhone / iPod Touch를 위한 시험용 버전을 공개하였습니다.
아직 프로그램을 사용할 수 있도록 내놓을 예정은 없지만, 실제 동작하는 비디오는 상당히 그럴듯 해 보입니다.
모든 응용프로그램들이 제대로 작동하며, 벤치마크 결과 Tungsten T보다 좀 더 빠른 결과를 보여줍니다.
또한 Apple의 키보드가 통합되어 작동합니다.

Taken from macrumors.com

Here it goes:

Steve enters from backstage and welcomes the audience to MacWorld 2008. He says that there are big plans for the day, but first he wants to provide numbers. His focus topics are the adoption rates for iPhone and Leopard, as well as quick notes on iTunes, iPod, and Mac sales.

Steve then apologizes, saying that there is nothing as big as the iPhone this year, but he thinks a lot of smaller “revolutionary” changes are happening that will hopefully make this year exciting as well.

Mac Nano
Steve mentions the iPod Nano, calling it the best-selling music device in history. He then reminds us that the “Nano” used to be “Mini” and brings up the existence of the Mac Mini. Steve then unveils the “Mac Nano,” a redesigned Mac Mini that is approximately half the height of its predecessor and in an anodized aluminum shell to match recent design changes in the Apple lineup.

The Mac Nano will come in two flavors, 2.0 GHz and 2.2 GHz (using current Santa Rosa chips), each of which comes standard with a 32 GB solid-state drive. Build-to-order options will include a 64 GB solid-state drive, as well as the option to instead use a conventional hard drive, with sizes up to 160 GB, all 5400 rpm.

On sale: TODAY. Shipping: FEBRUARY.

Mac Pro
Steve then says that “sometimes bigger is better,” and brings up the Mac Pro, lauding it as the “best workstation on the market.” Steve then introduces the new Penryn chipset, praising Intel for its innovation. He then introduces a redesigned Mac Pro. (There is no “final image” present in this draft Keynote). Steve brags that the Mac Pro was the first mainstream computer to feature eight cores, and says its time to bring that into everyone’s hands.

The new Mac Pro comes with dual 2.8 GHz Penryn Xeons standard, with build-to-order options for 3.0 GHz and 3.2 GHz. Standard RAM is bumped to 2 GB, standard hard drive to 320 GB. Standard graphics card is now 512 MB NVIDIA GeForce 8600 GT, with other graphics cards build-to-order.

Steve then reveals a final new feature: the Mac Pro is the first Mac to feature a high-definition optical drive, a Blu-ray drive for $400, BTO.

On sale: TODAY. Shipping: TODAY.

MacBook Pro
“Also an update for our mobile professionals.” Steve introduces the “new” MacBook Pro, built off of the mobile version of the “same Penryn chipset used in the Mac Pro.”

Clockspeeds upped to 2.4 GHz/2.6 GHz. 17” MacBook Pro gets LED backlighting. 15” MacBook Pro gets a resolution upgrade option BTO similar to the 17”. Still using the NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT, but video RAM upgraded to 256 MB/512 MB.

New option: black anodized aluminum, like the iPod Classic, due to the high demand of the “BlackBook.”

ON SALE: TODAY. Shipping: FEBRUARY.

New Accessories
Steve then lines up the three Mac desktops and points to their now common aluminum shells, then points out the white plastic Mighty Mouse. Quickly introduces the new aluminum Mighty Mouse, which is slightly slimmer than its predecessor and gets an extra 10% battery life.
On sale: TODAY. Shipping: TODAY.

Updated Cinema Displays
Steve calls the Apple monitors the “most gorgeous displays on the market,” but then lines up the iMac, MacBook, and MacBook Pro. Points to the lack of an iSight camera on the Cinema Display. All Cinema Displays now include a 2 MP iSight camera. Resolutions and other specs stay the same, but backlighting changed over to LED.

New prices:
20”: $399.
23”: $599.
30”: $1,249.
On sale: TODAY. Shipping: TODAY.

Steve then pretends to wrap up the speech, then does his usual...
One More Thing...
Grid illustration using keynote. Across the top: “Compact,” “Consumer,” “Professional.” Across the bottom: “Portable,” “Desktop.” Steve then illustrates how their current five offerings (including the “Mac Nano”) fill in five of the six spots. Steve points out the “missing hole” and brings up the 12” PowerBook G4.

Said that the 12” MacBook Pro was sort of like the PowerBook G5--everyone wanted it, but it was never meant to happen. Instead, Apple is entering the market with the “MacBook Nano,” the smallest and lightest Mac laptop ever produced.

This new ultra-portable will come with a 13” LED-backlit screen with 1280x800 resolution. It will come in two flavors, using 1.6 GHz and 1.8 GHz low-voltage Core 2 Duos each. The lower-end will feature a 32 GB SSD, the higher- a 64 GB. Neither will use optical drives and will rely on integrated graphics.

Steve will also reveal that they will be capable of getting up to 10 hours battery life. The two models will retail for $1,499 and $1,999, respectively.
