Apple's A8 Processor to Remain Dual-Core, Top 2 GHz?

Posted by · 12486 views · Translate

Apple's next generation processor rumored to power the iPhone 6 and future iOS devices will remain dual core, but feature clock speeds at 2GHz or more. The current iPhone 5s features an A7 processor that clocks at 1.3 Ghz, while the iPad Air's A7 is clocked at 1.4GHz.

The chip will obviously keep the the 64-bit architecture, but contrary to earlier reports, it will remain dual-core instead of the anticipated quad-core chip. According to Chinese media, the A8 will be manufactured using a 20nm process instead of a 28nm process. Previous reports have had the A8's clock-speed at 2.6GHz.

Back in February it was suggested that Apple would not integrate an LTE modem into the A8 processor and instead rely on Qualcomm's external chip. Integrating its own LTE modem would help Apple further optimize the chip for iOS.

TSMC and Samsung are reportedly the primary manufacturer of the new A8 Chip, and while many new smartphones are shipping with quad-core processors, Apple's ability to use custom-designed processors that are optimized for iOS may prove just as powerful.

I hope this is not true. Lesser-core can be useful to burst in speed... On a single process. When it comes to multitasking(which most ppl commonly use for) quadcore is an ideal. Also theres no clockspeed difference between dual and quad now so why even bother thinking of dualcore?? Unless we are talking quad and hexa core..

Remember how s4 has 4tb of ram and doesn't outpace iPhones after 4s? I am saying that dual core doesn't mean less power, besides some parts are for making stuff efficient on battery.

We have to make more money with the same old same old, let's just change their names and call them innovations, and you'll see we will fool the all or at least all the GayBoys and FanBoys and will tell them that we improved the ios for better performance, after all I don't think we will need to do anything at all. cause all the GayBoys and FanBoys in iClarified are doing it already.

We have to make ours with the same useless here and there, let's change our strategies to innowaition because we were the ones always waiting for you to make the stuff first and we try to be you guys and trick every last bibitch and fandungs which we use our money on them to defend just to brainwash the shit out of them, what other choice do we have than facing truths, we just hate and talk shit and that's how we become wannabe and the bibitches and fandungs get brainwashed, our products are open source like them meaning they kept living in rocks playing with maggots chomping their nerves like us, because all them prove us no matter where our jealousy travels.
