Apple A7 vs Intel Core i7-2600S: 27 facts in comparison

1. total clock speed

76.79% faster CPU clock speed.
4 x 2.8GHz

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.
450MHz(Imagination Technologies PowerVR G6430)
850MHz

5. L1 cache

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

6. L2 cache

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

7. Has integrated graphics

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

8. L2 core

More data can be stored in the L2 cache for access by each core of the CPU.
0.25MB/core

9. GeekBench result

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

10. DirectX version

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

12. Uses hyperthreading technology

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.

14. number of transistors

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

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. Supports hardware-assisted virtualization

It is easier to obtain better performance when using virtualization if it is hardware-assisted.
