iPad 4 A6X Chip Features Newer PowerVR SGX 554 GPU
The A6X chip found in the new fourth generation iPad utilizes the newer PowerVR SGX 554 GPU core, reports Anandtech.
The A6X retains the 128-bit wide memory interface of the A5X (and it keeps the memory controller interface adjacent to the GPU cores and not the CPU cores as is the case in the A5/A6). It also integrates two of Apple's new Swift cores running at up to 1.4GHz (a slight increase from the 1.3GHz cores in the iPhone 5's A6). The big news today is what happens on the GPU side. A quick look at the GLBenchmark results for the new iPad 4 tells us all we need to know. The A6X moves to a newer GPU core: the PowerVR SGX 554.
Tests performed by the site show almost double the performance in Egypt HD at 2048x1536 and performance that's well above 30 frames per second at native resolution for the first time.
