What’s Inside the iPhone 5? 1GB of Samsung RAM and Custom SoC
Apple didn’t really let too much of the technical side slip during their press conference to unveil the iPhone, did anyone really expect them to? It’s not really their style. Fortunately it is the style of Anandtech to dig deep into what they see, they did just that with the iPhone 5.
So just what did Anandtech find? Well, using the numbers that could be seen around the side of the A6 chip during the press conference the tech site came up with a few tidbits on the iPhone 5. Those numbers that flank the chip tell the guys over at Anandtech that the iPhone 5 will come with 1GB of DRAM which will have a data rate of 1066MHz. The speed of that memory was clocked at 8,528MB/sec which means the iPhone 5 is 33% faster than its predecessor.
In a separate article Anandtech point out that the Apple A6 chip could be Apple’s first in-house creation. They found that the technology was too new to be part of ARM’S Cortex-A9 architecture and is unique from that to be found in the upcoming Cortex-A15.
