Apple working on faster version of A4 with dual-core SGX543 graphics

Posted on Monday, January 17 2011 @ 21:57:03 CET by

Details about the new processor used by Apple's future iPad 2 and iPhone 5 devices has hit the web. According to a report by Apple Insider, the company has created a new, faster version of the A4 chip with dual-core SGX543 graphics.
This speed boost applies not only to graphics, such as drawing polygons in a video game or rendering fonts in a productivity app, but video processing as well. The A4 includes hardware acceleration for video decoding and encoding, and both appear to be used to support high quality video conferencing in Apple's FaceTime on iPhone 4. FaceTime and a front facing camera did not make the cut in the original iPad, but are expected on the new iPad 2.

Faster video processing could also enable Apple to upgrade the iPad and iPhone 4 from VGA-style component video output to the more modern HDMI, which is already used by the new iOS-based Apple TV. Some high end smartphones and tablet devices already support HDMI output, although not flawlessly.
Full details can be read over here.
