Apple A5X: 25 facts and highlights

1. total clock speed

2. RAM speed

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

3. semiconductor size

A smaller size indicates that the process to create the chip is newer.

4. CPU threads

More threads result in faster performance and better multitasking.

5. GPU clock speed

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

6. L1 cache

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

7. L2 cache

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

8. Has integrated graphics

With integrated graphics you don’t need to buy a separate graphics card.

9. L2 core

More data can be stored in the L2 cache for access by each core of the CPU.

10. GeekBench result

This is a cross-platform benchmark that measures the performance of the CPU. (Source: Primate Labs, 2017)

11. maximum memory bandwidth

This is the maximum rate that data can be read from or stored into memory.

12. DirectX version

DirectX is used in games, with newer versions supporting better graphics.

13. memory channels

More memory channels increases the speed of data transfer between the memory and the CPU.

14. Has dynamic frequency scaling

Dynamic frequency scaling is a technology that allows the processor to conserve power and reduce noise when it is under a light load.
