Apple A7: 28 facts and highlights

1. total clock speed

2. semiconductor size

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

3. CPU threads

More threads result in faster performance and better multitasking.

4. 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. L2 core

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

9. Supports 64-bit

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 applications.

15. memory channels

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

16. L3 cache

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

17. number of transistors

A higher transistor count generally indicates a newer, more powerful processor.

18. L3 core

More data can be stored in the L3 cache for access by each core of the CPU.

19. OpenGL version

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