Apple developing both A5X and A6 processors, hints iOS 5.1 code

Apple may be working on two new processors this year for the upcoming iPad 3 and iPhone 5. There have been conflicting reports from trustworthy publications, some claiming that the next-gen iPad would sport a new quad-core chip, while others claim an enhanced dual-core chip with an improved graphics engine. A recently leaked image purported to be the iPad 3's logic board, showed an "A5X" processor, suggesting a more evolutionary upgrade than revolutionary. However, 9to5Mac delved into iOS 5.1 code, finding that Apple may actually be developing both at the same time.

Apple iPhone 4S A5 chip vs 1.5 GHz dual-core Galaxy S II in browser tests [Video]

Apple iPhone 4S A5 chip vs 1.5 GHz dual-core Galaxy S II in browser tests [Video]

Though the 1.5 GHz Qualcomm dual-core processor may be the highest GHz dual-core processor in the land today, from what we're seeing here, the Apple A5 chip in the iPhone 4S certainly seems to be holding its own when tossed into the out-of--box browser competition. What we've got here for you is a slightly unscientific set of tests, one that first shows the difference between the iPhone 4 and the iPhone 4S, that is single-core compared to dual-core chips from Apple, then the iPhone 4S VS the Samsung Galaxy S II carried by T-Mobile, this version having a 1.5 GHz Qualcomm dual-core processor, all tests conducted simply by tapping a link and seeing how fast they can load a webpage.

Samsung and Apple tipped friendly on chips

Samsung and Apple tipped friendly on chips

This week a tip has come in from Korea that Apple may well have made up and shaken hands with Samsung for future chip production. This would be a multi-billion-dollar deal as it would remove TSMC from the equation, pushing Samsung back into the limelight for Apple device innards. Samsung has been a chipmaker for Apple before, but they had a bit of a falling out over the past several years. The chip chop talk goes back to 2012 and springs forward to the Apple iPhone 6 chip - not made by Samsung.

Samsung unveils Exynos 7 Octa, 20nm 64-bit Cortex-A57/A53

Samsung has an announcement, but unfortunately it isn't related to the rain of lollipops over the Internet. Or rather, it can be taken as indirectly related to Android 5.0 Lollipop too. The Korean electronics giant has just announced the newest member of its Exynos SoC family with a substantial jump in model number. The Exynos 7 Octa, with four Cortex-A57 and four Cortex-A53 cores, is one of the very few to be made using a 20 nm process. Curiously, Samsung isn't even mentioning the fact that this is a 64-bit chip.
