The engraving on the processor that is found inside the latest of next generation iPhone shows that the system on chip includes apple A4 and 256 MB of Samsung Dram on two dies.
This was the information that was told to iFixit based on the marking seen on the device and this was the same device that was photographed in Vietnam. The markings that were photographed marked APL0398 339S0084. This goes on to show that the hardware that was used was from A4 microprocessor while K4X2G643GE goes on to further show that the 256MB of system RAM from Samsung. Both of these were also to be seen in the processor that is inside iPad.
The comments that were made by the service providers were that on finding this, they were certainly not astounded. They had been quite stumped by the low amount of electricity that was consumed by the iPad and had already mentioned that the power consumption along with the board design was the far better in line in the handheld devices than a laptop computer.
Now, what the markings indicate is that the iPhone has the very same processor and RAM within it as that to be found in the iPad. This was the very same feature that was designed by Apple. The A4 Apple package was also like the iPhone processors used before this. It had three layers of circuitry. These three layers of circuitry include the microprocessor in one package and the other two memory modules in the two packages.
What iFixit did on hearing about this? iFixit told to have a real close and focused look at the A4 and this was after the iPad was launched in April. Then, along with Chipworks, X-ray was taken apart and the chip based on the ARM architecture. Within the iPad, the A4 low consumption of power ability ensures that it is able to function on low power and stand true to the advertised 10 hours of battery life.
The way the 1GHz processor is far faster, compared to the next generation iPhone which has the same amount of RAM to be found in the iPhone3GS. The model of the iPhone that was released in the year 2009 had a 600MHz processor. On the other hand the iPhone had a 400 MHz processor and 128MB.
The firm called Austin, Tex has come up with the most innovative suite of design tools called Fast 14. The way Fast 14 works is that it can expedite the working of the clock and the speed becomes faster when you compare that of static designs. The purchase of Apple processor was acknowledged in April.
The markings on the processor were certainly a great eye opener and got many people thinking about a whole lot of things.
