iPhone 6 processor performance

Apple’s new iPhones — the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus — come outfitted with Apple’s in-house designed A8 system-on-a-chip which has an astounding two billion transistors, twice as many as its predecessor, the A7.

The second-generation 64-bit mobile processor is fabricated on a smaller 20-nanomenter process technology making it more power-friendly and thirteen percent smaller than the A7.

The A8, said Phil Schiller, Apple’s Senior Vice President of Worldwide Marketing, features one-fifth faster CPU performance and fifty percent faster mobile graphics.

He says the gains provide “sustained performance,” suggesting the A8 packs in enough power to drive higher-resolution apps while maintaining its low energy consumption.

At any rate, the 50 percent faster graphics should really make a huge difference when coupled with Metal, a 3D graphics engine that Apple introduced last year which trims the fat and lets developers access hardware-specific features of the GPU without the overhead of OpenGL.

What do you think about the A8?

    I’m curious how long will the battery last…

    Worst live event ever 🙁

    Watch how Apple like always now ruin performance for older devices on purpose with software updates so the performance gap is more apparent so isheeps are fooled to buy the latest idevice.

      sad but true

    I missed the whole camera segment. Hah!

  • Dan

    I don’t play graphic intensive games so the 20% speed upgrade is pretty unsignificant as everything is pretty snappy already on my 5S

    I wonder if  pay gona work ? Like event stream!
