General info

1.Supports 64-bit
Apple A10
Apple A9
A 32-bit operating system can only support up to 4GB of RAM. 64-bit allows more than 4GB, giving increased performance. It also allows you to run 64-bit apps.
2.Has integrated graphics
Apple A10
Apple A9
With integrated graphics you don’t need to buy a separate graphics card.
Small semiconductors provide better performance and reduced power consumption. Chipsets with a higher number of transistors, semiconductor components of electronic devices, offer more computational power. A small form factor allows more transistors to fit on a chip, therefore increasing its performance.
4.GPU clock speed

900MHz

650MHz

The graphics processing unit (GPU) has a higher clock speed.
5.DirectX version

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (Apple A10)

11

DirectX is used in games, with newer versions supporting better graphics.
6.has 5G support
Apple A10
Apple A9
The fifth-generation wireless technology delivers higher speeds and lower latency than the previous, fourth-generation tech.
OpenGL ES is used for games on mobile devices such as smartphones. Newer versions support better graphics.
8.GPU turbo

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (Apple A10)

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (Apple A9)

When the GPU is running below its limitations, it can boost to a higher clock speed in order to give increased performance.
Some apps use OpenCL to apply the power of the graphics processing unit (GPU) for non-graphical computing. Newer versions introduce more functionality and better performance.

Performance

1.CPU speed

2 x 2.34GHz & 2 x 1.1GHz

2 x 2GHz

The CPU speed indicates how many processing cycles per second can be executed by a CPU, considering all of its cores (processing units). It is calculated by adding the clock rates of each core or, in the case of multi-core processors employing different microarchitectures, of each group of cores.
More threads result in faster performance and better multitasking.
3.Uses big.LITTLE technology
Apple A10
Apple A9
Using big.LITTLE technology, a chip can switch between two sets of processor cores to maximize performance and battery life. For example, when playing a game the more powerful cores will be used to increase performance, whereas checking email will use the less powerful cores to maximize battery life.
4.Uses HMP
Apple A10
Apple A9
Heterogeneous Multi-Processing (HMP) is a more advanced version of big.LITTLE technology. In this setup, a processor can utilize all cores at the same time, or just a single core for low-intensity tasks. This can provide powerful performance or increased battery life respectively.
5.turbo clock speed

When the CPU is running below its limitations, it can boost to a higher clock speed in order to give increased performance.
6.L2 cache

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (Apple A10)

3MB

A larger L2 cache results in faster CPU and system-wide performance.
7.L1 cache

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (Apple A10)

128KB

A larger L1 cache results in faster CPU and system-wide performance.
8.clock multiplier

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (Apple A10)

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (Apple A9)

The clock multiplier controls the speed of the CPU.
9.L3 cache

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (Apple A10)

4MB

A larger L3 cache results in faster CPU and system-wide performance.

Memory

1.RAM speed

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (Apple A10)

1333MHz

It can support faster memory, which will give quicker system performance.
2.maximum memory bandwidth

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (Apple A10)

14.9GB/s

This is the maximum rate that data can be read from or stored into memory.
More memory channels increases the speed of data transfer between the memory and the CPU.
4.maximum memory amount

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (Apple A10)

4GB

The maximum amount of memory (RAM) supported.
5.eMMC version

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (Apple A10)

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (Apple A9)

A higher version of eMMC allows faster memory interfaces, having a positive effect on the performance of a device. For example, when transferring files from your computer to the internal storage over USB.
6.Supports ECC memory
Apple A10
Apple A9
Error-correcting code memory can detect and correct data corruption. It is used when is it essential to avoid corruption, such as scientific computing or when running a server.
7.DDR memory version

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (Apple A10)

4

DDR (Double Data Rate) memory is the most common type of RAM. Newer versions of DDR memory support higher maximum speeds and are more energy-efficient.

Features

1.Has integrated LTE
Apple A10
Apple A9
The system on a chip (SoC) has an integrated LTE cellular chip. LTE is capable of downloading at faster speeds than older, 3G technology.
2.download speed

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (Apple A10)

450MBits/s

The download speed is a measurement of the internet connection bandwidth, representing the maximum data transfer rate at which a device can access online content.
3.Has NX bit
Apple A10
Apple A9
NX bit helps protect the computer from malicious attacks.
NEON provides acceleration for media processing, such as listening to MP3s.
5.Has AES
Apple A10
Apple A9
AES is used to speed up encryption and decryption.
6.Has TrustZone
Apple A10
Apple A9
A technology integrated into the processor to secure the device for use with features such as mobile payments and streaming video using digital rights management (DRM).
7.upload speed

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (Apple A10)

150MBits/s

The upload speed is a measurement of the internet connection bandwidth, representing the maximum data transfer rate at which a device can send information to a server or another device.
Vector Floating-Point (VFP) is used by the processor to deliver increased performance in areas such as digital imaging.
9.uses multithreading
Apple A10
Apple A9
Multithreading technology (such as Intel's Hyperthreading or AMD's Simultaneous Multithreading) provides increased performance by splitting each of the processor's physical cores into virtual cores, also known as threads. This way, each core can run two instruction streams at once.
