Apple iPhone 5 to flaunt new A8 processor

Anonymous Coward writes | more than 3 years ago


An anonymous reader writes "The release of iOS 4.3 beta for developers has revealed updates to gesture-based navigation, AirPlay and Personal Hot Spot, in the next edition of iPad and iPhone. However not all changes are UI related; it is reported that Apple is due to add an ARM Cortex A8 processor to its iPhone 5. Apple Daily, ,a Hong Kong based newspaper, reported that Apple's iPhone 5 will be powered by a dual core processor with SGX543 graphics. It is reported that Apple is in contact with a Taiwanese component maker for the A8 SoC. Currently Apple uses a custom made A4 SoC in its iPad and iPhone 4 and uses SGX535 graphics and video support."

A4 already has an A8 processor. (0)

A4 uses a Cortex A8 processor. A4 is the marketing term for their SoC, (Cortex A8 @ ~1ghz + PowerVR 430). The next version will probably have a Cortex A9 based chip.
