Apple revealed the A4 System-on-Chip processor with the iPad open in January 2010. Afterward very similar A4 Chip was utilized in the iPhone 4, fourth generation iPod touch and second generation Apple TV. At this moment a Hong Kong based newspaper Apple Daily has stated that Apple is functioning on the next generation iPhone and has got in touch with little Taiwan-based dealers for the mechanism. It’s being wondered that Apple is working on the ARM architecture based A8 System-on-Chip for the iPhone 5 and other gadgets.
The Apple A4 chip clocked at 1 GHz contains an ARM Cortex A8 processor core and PowerVR SGX535 graphics packed on an only die of silicon. It’s influential adequate to present astonishing graphics on iPad, iPhone 4, fourth generation iPod touch and Apple TV second generation.
Apple is alleged to have got in touched with Taiwanese part manufacturers for the A8 SoC packaging. The A8 SoC application processor is buffed for the iPhone fifth generation and other gadgets. There is no specifying concerning the alleged A8 application processor. On the other hand, I think that the A8 SoC chip would be made of a dual-core processor packed with PowerVR SGX543 graphics on similar silicon.

Current result from iOS 4.3 as stated by MacRumors pointed out that the prospect gadgets will have PowerVR SGX543 graphics. It is very similar graphics that was alleged back in March 2009 and Apple was thought to be setting up a multi-core iPhone. The PowerVR SGX543 supports dual-core processors and moreover Open Computing Language (OpenCL) that is utilized on Apple Mac OS X Snow Leopard. The OpenCL permits the operating system to gather advantages of the GPU for common reason computing and create the most excellent of CPU-GPU mixture. In summary, upcoming iOS edition used with the A8 SoC including of multi-core CPU and influential graphics would surely create Apple gadgets more pleasing.
Starting now, none of these particulars are corroborated and therefore I have to call them a rumor. Fairly probable those details of Apple A8 may have been puzzled with the ARM Cortex-A8 CPU, which resides in the Apple A4 SoC processor. nonetheless, a dual-core processor iPhone with influential graphics chip certainly seems similar to a possible alternative for Apple, particularly following the CES 2011 that carrying us a quantity of 4-inch screen phones running dual-core 1GHz Nvidia Tegra T20 mobile application processor. We don’t mind multi-core smartphones although not at the cost of battery life. We expect Apple arises with the most excellent of both worlds.
