Ever since the iPhone 5 announcement, it's been a mystery what exactly makes the new A6 processor tick. We've already seen its impressive performance benchmarked, but now we get to take a closer look at the architecture itself.



A new microscopic examination of the chip not only shows the custom dual ARM cores side-by-side, but also lets us see the unique triple-GPU layout.

What does this mean? Simply put, Apple have invested in customizing their own chipset, which results in an optimized architecture capable of producing better results without having to rely on higher clock speeds.

This extra customization process in the face of off-the-shelf solutions like the Cortex-A15 shows some great innovation from the Cupertino-based tech giant.
