Apple’s 64-Bit A7 Chip Surprised Everyone

A senior member of Qualcomm scoffed at the 64-bit A7 microprocessor that Apple came out with a few months ago. He said that it was a trick and a gimmick that wouldn’t work in real life. But now the same critic has had to eat his words. Apple’s core technology has really surprised the world with its ingenuity and functionality. 

“The 64-bit Apple chip hit us in the gut,” says the Qualcomm employee. “Not just us, but everyone, really. We were slack-jawed, and stunned, and unprepared. It’s not that big a performance difference right now, since most current software won’t benefit. But in Spinal Tap terms it’s like, 32 more, and now everyone wants it.”

Now, Apple is the top cat among the rest of the high tech firms. People had simply underestimated Apple. The A7 was something which Apple kept in reserve until the iPhone came out in September. Among the products by Apple that have the super-chip inside them may be included: the iPhone 5S, the iPad Air and, last but not least, the iPad mini with Retina Display. 

It seems that not only does Apple’s 64-bit A7 processor work but it functions with incredible speed and efficiency. Apple is on cloud nine with its new invention and the rest of the organizations in the world can eat their hearts out. 

Meanwhile, since it is a copycat world we are living in, Qualcomm and Samsung will be trying their best to imitate Apple in this regard. Apple on the other hand is content with its latest thing and will not necessarily be employing it in each and every one of its gadgets.
