Lol @Apple fans. Stop praising Apple for the chip. This chip is probably the worst they ever had in an iPhone. They rushed this A-50 class chip so much they made it a dual 1.3 Ghz because it's THAT power-inefficient. This dual 1.3 consumes as much power as SD800 which is a quad 2.2+ Ghz... Everyone decided to wait, test them more and adopt ARMv8 with 64-bit chips next year. Apple decided they will be cooler and made this. The change to ARMv8 is supposed to bring HUUUUUUUUGE improvements in performance. Apple used a completely new design and barely reached the performance of SD800 which is using krait cores, which are now almost 2 year old...Making a next-gen chip and barely reaching performance of 2 year old parts is embarassing.
Next year Qualcomm and the others will bring chips with the exact same or better performance/Mhz but at least dual 2ghz+ or quad 1.5+. Then you will see how much Apple really failed.
So in a nuthsell. Apple's A7 is extremely rushed, power inefficient and just plain BAD overall for a next-gen ARMv8 chip. End of story
INDROID, 30 Sep 2013apple cannot survive without samsung... admit it cook(er)Apple: Can't get off that Samsung crack pipe.
i'm not an apple fan but for all those ppl laughing at apple's inability to manufacture its own hardware parts i'll make just a simple comparisson : apple its like one of those old spoiled filthy rich men that has anything he wants , while samsung is his loyal and skilled servant..soo no matter how skilled samsung is, it still has to work hard for the money is being paid.. :)
Ahaha samsung to make as always i think samsung benefits more in this project they can copy again and update it then they can put on their phones just changing the names but with the same platform
Rated R, 30 Sep 2013And still some dumb people says A7 is faster than s4's processors according to benchmark, they... more... the benchmark is without screen resolution included.
But nevermind, you are free to deny. Just wait until iPad mini with A7 with retina display.. if that is true, you will be speechless.
And still some dumb people says A7 is faster than s4's processors according to benchmark, they cant realize Apple running benchmark on below HD resolution where s4 running benchmark on full hd screen.
ha ha... apple is such a joke. apple is nothing but a assembled device without any innovation
samsung rules, 30 Sep 2013Samsung should equiped their a8 chipsets with self destruct that will destroy all the iphones ... moreYea, that will be great idea so apple will have to learn how to make their own chipsets for their iDevices LOL and be competitive on the real technological perspective, for the survival of the garget wars LOL
Samsung should equiped their a8 chipsets with self destruct that will destroy all the iphones that it is been powered by their chipset
Army of Android, 30 Sep 2013Good luck for your Samsung's chips. Millions of iPhones sold surpassed it's chip's company own... moreIn one phone because it's the only choice with them. Since Samsung has choice their sales diverse in different phones. Which together demolish Iphone sales.
Learn to think?
mycellphonesolutions, 30 Sep 2013Wow! Samsung will made 30-40% of A8 chip for Apple device LOL that's funny that Apple cannot l... moreGood luck for your Samsung's chips. Millions of iPhones sold surpassed it's chip's company own smartphone in sellling.
Wow! Samsung will made 30-40% of A8 chip for Apple device LOL that's funny that Apple cannot live without Samsung's help, that means more profit for Samsung than Apple even iPhone sold more than 9 million worldwide, but Samsung made their way inside apple products in Every bite LOL
Meaning Samsung corporation is still the WINNER! because apple cannot do their chip for their apple device without the help of Samsung LOL
So Samsung is making money from Apple but apple cannot make even a penny from Samsung...
