A glimpse into Apple's most advanced processor

What does the A10X that runs the new iPad devices and sets up the To the era of 10 nanometer chips at a closer look? The answers are inside

In the middle of the month they reached the shops officially Apple's two most recent and impressive works - God- Second-generation 12.9-2 Pro, and The new 10.5 Pro, which inherited the previous miniaturized model, and like every new generation of the company, this time we have seen a very impressive leap in material performance, bringing the world's most popular tablets to the point where they are equivalent to the At least according to some performance tests.

This is certainly an impressive point, which places Apple as a force that should be taken into account in the world of chip development, and as a potential competition for Intel, (Even though we may not see its products in any product other than Apple itself) - but what is even more impressive is that the chip that allows this, the A10X is also one of the smallest that the company has created to date, thanks to its reliance on the company's innovative production process In 10 nanometers, which is therefore in commercial use for the very first time.

Promised us great capabilities - and there is

The Techinsights site specializing in reverse-engineered chipset and other hardware has managed to put their hands on the A10X, remove the cover and put it under the microscope's eye, all to tell us it's a tiny 96 square-inch chip - small in 34 About a percent of what A9X that came before it based on a process of 16 nm, also smaller than what- A10 and A9, which are more modest in their capabilities than the Snapdragon 821 (But not what- 835, which is also based on an innovative 10 nanometer process, is quite remarkable for an array of 2.4GHz processing cores and an advanced graphite core with 12 processing threads within it.

Apple has regained its crown of performance in the mobile market, and has even undergone a large portion of the mainstream stationary processors - courtesy of the central partner TSMC

Battery Life Exams The newcomers, who are also impressive in their results, make it clear that dimension reduction has come along with significantly streamlined operation, so there's a complete enhanced package here, with no apparent compromises - which is most impressive for a first-of-its-kind product based on fresh technology generation.

Which makes us imagine what the capabilities and performance will be in processing core with 3 or 4, which are characteristic of other categories

In such a situation, we have nothing left but to begin to fantasize about the extra performance and minimization of the dimensions that we can enjoy with more chips in the not too distant future - even in the products of Which are supposed to finally switch to 10 nanometers at the end of the year, in graphical processing cores that will be based on the production process In 10 nanometers, and especially in products that will be based on production processes on 7 nanometers only that prepares us for GlobalFoundries, and , For another year and a half from now.

One of the many proofs is that the addition of tens of percent A10X also came with an impressive improvement in power consumption and battery life

    1. Apple produces chip shit It's not bad for Intel to make the chips, even though 2018 or 19 to reduce the cost of marketing will produce the chips

  1. Um ... who cares?
    As if tablets are a dead market.
    Most people buy a tablet to watch something on YouTube or play Candy Crash, which is also a Chinese 50 dollar tablet today.

    1. Again a kid's reaction behind the keyboard that doesn't understand anything? Why respond to just nonsense that you think you know but actually have no idea?

      1. As of May 31 2017 year, Apple has sold about 360 million units since XADUMX's various IPADs.
      Is this a dead market figure? Add to that another 500 million of the Android Market and you have a market of close to a billion! Tablets since 2010. It is important to note that out of the 360 million units Apple has sold, Samsung has only sold half of it alone, except for the dozens of other manufacturers of course.

      2. The app market, the business market is up and running and there are not a few companies (in one case mine) where people do use a specific iPad that is very well suited for their jobs in general, whether it's meetings, screen broadcasting, meeting management and lots of other stuff.
      Especially for those who have flown quite a bit, it is a device.

      3. IPhones? More than 1.2 billion iPhones have been sold since launch + thousands of apps! That's all.

      So nice that you believe that most people buy tablets / iPads just to watch some YouTube, but there is a large and whole world of people who use it much more advanced, not just a small number can insert a SIM card, to be mobile with them.

      Go back and do some homework and don't spread your knowledge, someone else may believe you.

    2. The tablet market is tired, but the iPad Pro is no longer a tablet but a computer. Both in terms of price and performance, and what can be done about it. So precisely here Apple just found the niche as there is demand. As evidenced by its sales and sales of Microsoft's surface. The common denominator was that they were actually professional tools rather than simple tablets for media consumption

    A. Not a kid.
    B. The tablet market is collapsing and this is a fact, the Chinese have broken this market and today the prices of these products are so weak that many big brands have retired.
    third. Since the 2014 tablet market has been on the decline when the 2014 market has dropped by 10-15% percent each year, however, the mobile market and laptops market has only continued to grow so you can see a clear trend here.
    D. You can also see that many companies have stopped investing in these products, including big companies like Samsung who spend more money advertising their VR than their tablet.
    God. Less than 10% of products in this category (tablet) went to the business and professional market so your argument is wrong, most people who bought a tablet used it to play Candy Crash or watch porn.
    and. Tablets have never been productive products, no professional has ever purchased a tablet to use it as professionally as programmers, composers or graphic artists. All those people just bought a laptop that comes with more powerful hardware.
    G. You are the least kind of fanboy, telling me to do homework while your arguments do not hold water.

  3. A. The tablet market is shrinking, but not collapsing.

    B. Apple are the only ones who see a future in the tablet market, but they are the only ones who actually sell tablets anyway. No competing company has been able to produce a tablet that scrapes iPads sales.

    third. The mobile and stationary market is also shrinking from year to year as more people prefer to consume content via cell phones.

    D. Playing at Kennedy Crash and watching porn is a perfectly legitimate use. You might think every computer owner uses a computer to program and work on complex Excel sheets ...

    God. Set up productivity. In my opinion, a tablet can certainly be a productive device. I am an accountant and I use the iPad for answering emails and reading legislative updates while traveling by train.

    and. The iPad 2 hardware is more powerful than most laptops on the market. Apple Pencil is an amazing thing. Lots of graphic artists and composers bought iPad Pro for work.

    G. Apple certainly believes that the iPad can answer people who, on the one hand, need something bigger and stronger than a cell phone, but on the other hand do not want to carry on the back a laptop weighing 2 kg with a battery that provides 4 hours at best.

    H. iOS 11 will give iPads a significant productivity upgrade.

  4. Regardless of how Android operating system simply shoots itself on foot. It is simply a poor operating system and as the devices progress, its essential drawbacks will hurt its performance potential and the hardware it wants.
    For example, an emulator developer said that Android is the worst operating system for emulators. There's always a LATENCY out there that, even in GAMECUBE over a decade ago, games with faster response time can be run.
