Earlier this week, Apple introduced the most amazing iPhone 5, but as usual the fruit company didn’t reveal the information on different internal parts of iPhone 5. Just like previous iPhones, Apple gave a code name to the processor of the iPhone 5 but didn’t tell the exact information about it or the RAM of the iPhone 5. Different rumors have already told us about the internals of the iPhone 5.
It was assumed that the iPhone 5 will have updated processor; it may be an updated version of iPad 2’s A5 Chip with higher clocked version, which is actually ARM Cortex A9-based. But according to a recent post from Anandtech, the iPhone 5 doesn’t have an updated version of A5 but it has something more amazing. A6 is the Apple’s first custom-designed ARM Chipset.
Here’s what they posted:
The A6 is the first Apple SoC to use its own ARMv7 based processor design. The CPU core(s) aren’t based on a vanilla A9 or A15 design from ARM IP, but instead are something of Apple’s own creation. [..] The deeper machine plus much wider front end and execution engines drives both power and performance up.
The writer is not sure about the cores of the processor, but most probably it will be Dual-core. Apple hasn’t unveiled any details about the Cores and Clock speed of the A6 and how it will be compared to the Other Smartphones such as Nokia Lumia 920 and Samsung Galaxy S3.
The other thing revealed is the RAM of the iPhone 5; Apple has updated the RAM of the iPhone. Previously, iPhone 4S had 512 MB RAM but iPhone’s RAM is updated to 1GB. But still it’s less than Samsung Galaxy S3 which packs 2GB RAM. After all who need too much RAM when your iPhone’s performance is perfectly fine. What do you think?
