Apple iPad A4 Chip believed to be not that Magical

When Apple unveiled the iPad, the fast rendering of the user interface raised a lot of attention. Apple just said that the iPad is powered by their own chip called the Apple A4. Apple did not reveal further details about the A4, but we have learned in the meantime that it is an ARM based SOC and PowerVR SGX graphics.

Arstechnica has published a new report that tries to uncover the A4.

Their conclusion is that the Apple A4 is a stripped down ARM Cortex A8 core. Apple cut away all units that deal with I/O that the iPad does not have. The role of P.A. Semi in the design of the A4 remains to be a mystery as cutting away stuff does not take much effort. According to Arstechnica, P.A. Semi could have design a new power management for the A4, making it super efficient.

Apple has possibly once again achieved with the A4 more with less. This is a kind of magic that we see in a lot of Apple products.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
