2021何凯文每日一句系列

今天的句子:

“Apple has made enormous investments in Arm chip design and it’s logical that it extends that capability beyond the iPhone and iPad,” said Geoff Blaber of analysts CCS Insight. “Its motivations for doing so include reducing its dependence on Intel, maximising its silicon investment, boosting performance, and giving itself more flexibility and agility when it comes to future products.” Now that Microsoft and Apple are switching to their own chips, and with Google also rumored to be working on similar own-brand ARM chips, Intel is in danger of seeing significant erosion of its dominant position.

思考题:

Who will be most likely to suffer from Apple’s recent chip investment?

(A) Google (B) Intel (C) chip industry (D)Microsoft

句子解析:

第一句:

“Apple has made enormous investments in Arm chip design and it’s logical that it extends that capability beyond the iPhone and iPad,” said Geoff Blaber of analysts CCS Insight.

参考译文:CCS Insight的分析师杰夫·布拉伯说,“苹果对ARM芯片的设计投资巨大,因此将这种能力扩展到iPhone和iPad之外合乎情理。”

第二句:

“Its motivations for doing so include reducing its dependence on Intel,maximising its silicon investment, boosting performance, and giving itself more flexibility and agility when it comes to future products.”

参考译文:“苹果这么做的动机包括减少对英特尔的依赖,最 大化其芯片投资的效益,提高性能,并令其在未来产品的开发上更加灵活、敏捷。”

第三句:

Now that (Microsoft and Apple are switching to their own chips状语从句的主句), and with Google also rumoured to be working on similar own-brand ARM chips(状语从句的状语), Intel is in danger (主句)of seeing significant erosion of its dominant position(状语).

参考译文:微软和苹果正在转向自研芯片,而且也有传言说谷歌正在开发类似的自有品牌ARM芯片,英特尔的主导地位存在被显著削弱的风险。

思考题解析:

Who will be most likely to suffer from Apple’s recent chip investment?

谁最有可能受到苹果最近的芯片投资的负面影响?

(A) Google (B) Intel (C) chip industry (D)Microsoft

定位最后一句:

Intel is in danger of seeing significant erosion of its dominant position.

英特尔的主导地位存在被显著削弱的风险

(B) Intel 正确!

定位正确,成功一半!

有干扰性的是C选项。

但是文章毕竟没有提到对整个行业的影响。

而且题干有个most 这样就更锁定了B选项!

Apple ditches Intel for ARM processors in Mac computers with Big Sur

苹果在使用Big Sur系统的Mac电脑中抛弃英特尔,转向ARM处理器

Source: https://www.theguardian.com/technology/2020/jun/22/apple-ditches-intel-for-arm-processors-in-big-sur-computers

背景:苹果公司近日在全球开发者大会上宣布,将在使用Big Sur系统的新款Mac电脑中弃用英特尔芯片,转而使用基于ARM架构的自研芯片。苹果公司将在未来的两年内完成向自研芯片的过渡,即未来两年的苹果电脑会分出因特尔芯片机和ARM芯片机。专业人士,苹果此举在预料之中,因为该公司一直在芯片开发上投资颇巨,不会止步于其在iPhone和iPad上的应用。另外,自有芯片的使用可以大幅提升性能,延长电池的续航时间,并允许iPhone和iPad上的应用程序在Mac上直接运行。目前,苹果正在和微软及Adobe公司合作解决一些主流文字及图像处理程序在新架构下的运行和兼容。同时,坊间传言,继微软和苹果之后,谷歌也正加大力度开发自研芯片,这个趋势之下,因特尔的市场主导地位怕是快要走到尽头。
