second 64 bit is useful only when you have ram greater than 4GB(may be s5 will have it).

PowerVR series 6 is the best GPU currently in the market and only iPhone 5s has it. Not even S4 and Note 3 has it.

> In reply to [deleted post]It's not copying. It's called outsourcing. Apple designs their chip on their own & give contact to other manufacturers be it be samsung, qualcom or anyone else. Its like a builder building a building taking help from labour bcz he can't do it on its own.

The most revealing thing about this chip is that it demonstrates the huge superiority of ARMv8 architecture compared to Intel silvermont core.

At only 1.3Ghz two core setup, it beats high clocked quad core Bail Trail in every benchmark, and even trashes it in some (the Geekbench score)
And I'm not even going into GPU comparison
