Apple A8 SoC In IPhone 6 Rumored To Come With 2 GHz CPUBy cheatmaster 04:44 Tue, 20 Jul 2021 Comments
Not one day goes by without a recent rumor about Apple's upcoming smartphone - and today is no different.
The focus of the newest purportedly leaked information is the Apple A8 SoC that will be employed by the iPhone 6.
The chipset is assumed to be made using a 20nm process, and it will still be 64-bit, as is the A7 in the iPhone 5S.
The recent SoC will stick with a dual-core Central Processing Units (CPU) like its predecessors, though we will apparently see Apple breaking the 2 Giga Hertz (GHz) barrier. This would be a first for the company's phones.
However, it's still unclear just how much the A8's Central Processing Units (CPU) will go past that threshold, if at all. So it could acquire 2 Giga Hertz (GHz) as its maximum frequency, or more than that.
This should obviously result in a performance boost for the recent handset, since the iPhone 5S has a Central Processing Units (CPU) clocked at 1.3 GHz.
TSMC may be involved in the production of the A8 chipset, probably alongside Samsung (Apple's traditional supplier).
