Apple iPhone 4 Packing iPad A4 Chip
More iPhone 4 news following the scrutiny by Gawker’s Gizmodo.
Apparently, an unnamed industry source has mentioned that the new iPhone will use Appleâ€™s own A4 processor. This is the same CPU as the iPad which means that iPhone 4G should be pretty nippy and will out-drag the iPhone 3GS and its ARM CPU.
What makes the in-house A4 chip attractive for the iPhone is that it’s a system-on-a-chip (SOC). Basically you get the main processor, graphics and other functions like the memory controller on a single silicon chunk.
It’s certainly getting exciting! 🙂
