Apple A7 vs Intel Core i7-2600S

Top Six Reasons for the

Apple A7

Compared to Intel Core i7-2600S

60
Significantly smaller semiconductor size
Comment
28nm
vs
32nm
4nm smaller semiconductor size. A smaller size indicates that the process to create the chip is newer.

50
Notably more L2 cache per core
Comment
0.5MB/core
vs
0.25MB/core
0.25MB/core more L2 cache per core. More data can be stored in the L2 cache for access by each core of the CPU.

116
Considerably faster CPU clock speed
Comment
4 x 2.8GHz
vs
2 x 1.3GHz
4.31x faster CPU clock speed

×

46
Vastly faster GPU clock speed
Comment
850MHz
vs
450MHz
400MHz faster GPU clock speed. The graphics processing unit (GPU) has a higher clock speed.

×

44
Uses hyperthreading technology
Comment
Yes
vs
No
Many of Intel's processors use hyperthreading, which means that each core of the processor can work on two threads at once instead of most processors which work on a single thread per core. This means you can have significant performance gains in certain applications.

33
Has MMX
Comment
Yes
vs
No
MMX is used to speed up tasks such as adjusting the contrast of an image or adjusting volume.

×

28
Has AVX
Comment
Yes
vs
No
AVX is used to help speed up calculations in multimedia, scientific and financial applications, as well as improving Linux RAID software performance.
