A7 processor of Apple proves its extremely powerful
It turns out that the claims of Apple, the processor A7 is a computer class were not mere marketing. This suggests new information which claims that A7 is more powerful than anything else that competitors have submitted the mobile market . The publication is based on additional documentation for the chip and its own investigation and concluded that there is virtually no application for iOS, you can use the full power of the CPU.
According to the information compared to Cyclone (codenamed A7) the other players in the market for mobile chips with low power consumption targets are not high enough. “Apple has done a competitor to Qualcomm Snapdragon Krait or Intel Silvermont, but instead has created something that is much closer to the big cores Intel.” We expected next edition processor to be even faster with the transition to 22 – nanometer manufacturing process, which will allow the company to raise clock speeds without affect energy consumption.
