iPhone 6 Set To Feature A Dual-Core A8 CPU Clocked At 2GHz

/ 8 years ago


News surrounding the iPhone 6 is unsurprisingly fruitful as ever and even though Apple themselves are keeping their cards very close to their chest, so-called leaks and rumours are circulating around very freely.

The latest information that we’re now hearing with the upcoming iHandset is in relation to the processor that will be at the heart of everything. Interestingly enough it seems that, according to Chinese site Cnbeta, the iPhone 6 will follow in the footsteps of its older siblings with a dual-core processor, although the clock speed has been ramped up to 2GHz – a full 700MHz increase over the 5S.

In addition to the faster clock speed, the sources also suggest that the A8 CPU will be running on a 20nm architecture, down from the 28nm architecture of the current A7 – we all know Apple like to save space so why the hell not shrink the CPU.

Even though the A8 processor will be smaller and faster than the A7, it is still only dual-core and with most Android based phones today featuring quad-core chips, deciding whether or not this is a bold more or not is yet to be decided – sure Apple are likely to move to quad-core in the future, but when exactly is anyone’s guess.

As with all rumours and supposed leaks, we don’t know if this is the definite specification that will be seen at launch so lets just continue sitting where we are, looking at information trickle in as we make up a picture of what could be the real deal.
