Intrinsity processor in the Apple iPad?

Posted on Friday, April 23 2010 @ 02:56:39 CEST by

IEEE Spectrum reports the processor inside the iPad may have been developed by Intrinsity, and the site also reports that there's reason to believe that Apple has quietly acquired this company.
Today, analysts speculate Intrinsity’s enhanced A8, dubbed ”Hummingbird,” powers the 1-GHz Apple iPad and may (within a chip bearing the Apple logo) lie at the heart of the next version of the iPhone, too.

”Actually, there’s no speculation,” market analyst Will Strauss, from Tempe, Ariz.–based Forward Concepts, says of the Hummingbird-iPad claim. ”It’s only the Intrinsity folks who could have taken it up to a gigahertz. Period.”

Strauss, one of a number of industry analysts who have made the case that Hummingbird powers the iPad, points to the fact that X-ray photography and analysis by reverse-engineering firm Chipworks have confirmed that the iPad runs on some version of the single-core A8 processor.
