How the iPhone 5 got its 'insanely great' A6 processor

It’s hard not to be impressed by the A6 engine in the new iPhone 5, since it’s now proven to deliver a double-shot of great performance and class-leading battery life. But silicon stories like that don’t happen over night or even over the course of a year — in fact, analyst Linley Gwennap has traced the origins of the A6 all the way back to 2008, when Steve Jobs purchased processor design companyP.A. Semi and set one of its teams to work on creating something “insanely great” for mobile devices.

Although Apple is steadfastly secretive about its components, Gwennap’s history of the A6 (linked below) is both plausible and a straight-up good read for anyone interested in the more fundamental aspects of their gadgets. Whereas the A5 processor stuck closely to ARM’s Cortex-A9 design, Gwennap is convinced — just like Anandtech is –that the A6 treads a very different path: it’s still based on ARM’s architecture and it’s likely fabricated by Samsung using a cutting-edge 32nm process, but it’s an in-housevision of what a mobile chip should be. It’s the culmination of four years of hard work and perhaps half a billion dollars of investment.

That’s not to say it’s the most powerful chip out there, or even the chip most tailored to its host device — after all, Samsung also designs great chips for some of its own smartphones. Indeed, Gwennap says that the A6 is probably a dual-core processor that is no more complex than Qualcomm’s Snapdragon S4 (let alone the S4 Pro) or the forthcoming generation of Cortex-A15 chips, while its clock speed could be as low as 1.2GHz — versus a 1.6GHz quad-core Exynos in the Note II and even a 2GHz Intel chip in Motorola’s new RAZR i. However, Gwennap predicted that even if the A6 falls short of its rivals “in raw CPU performance,” it’d make up for it in terms of low power consumption — which is precisely what we’ve confirmed in our review.

Steve Jobs – I’m going To Kill Android – And More

October 21st, 2011

So I was reading about this on BGR.com, here a few bullets from Job’s biography, and as much as I admire him this looks like BS and More BS…

“I will spend my last dying breath if I need to, and I will spend every penny of Apple’s $40 billion in the bank, to right this wrong,” Jobs said, according to Isaacson’s book. “I’m going to destroy Android, because it’s a stolen product. I’m willing to go thermonuclear war on this.”

My Thoughts – Stolen from who? come one it might do the same thing in the end but it doesn’t look alike, as well if this is the case I think you stole from Microsoft and Palm…. (WM 6 looked like crap but did everything the basic iPhone does)

Jobs would later meet with Google’s CEO Eric Schmidt to discuss settling the lawsuit. That meeting, according to the book, did not go well. ”I don’t want your money,” Jobs is said to have told Schmidt. “If you offer me $5 billion, I won’t want it. I’ve got plenty of money. I want you to stop using our ideas in Android, that’s all I want.”

My Thoughts – Maybe Apple should stop stealing form their developers and other mobile OS’s (especially Android with iOS5) before he opens his mouth like that, when the first iPhone came out and all Cydia developers did amazing things with the iPhone apple simply stole from them even the GUI of iBooks was stolen!!! come on….

Apple’s new CEO Tim Cook has made clear his intention to continue running Apple as Jobs did, and it appears a major part of his legacy is the fight against Google’s actions with Android, which Jabs said amount to “grand theft.”

My Thoughts – Again another stupid comment, instead of vesting time against a Company that innovated put the money towards more innovation…. bottom line is WE the customer will get more out of it.
