Apple’s A6 Chip Confirmed to Feature Triple-Core GPU Assembly

Intriguing details about Apple’s new A6 processor (such as that it is their first completely custom design) have begun cropping up surrounding the launch of the iPhone 5, and now AnandTech has discovered yet another juicy tidbit – the chip features three separate graphics cores!


Our good friends at UBM TechInsights sent over the first diffusion images of Apple’s new A6 SoC. It’s still too early to tell a lot but we have confirmation of a lot of things. The image above shows two 32-bit LPDDR2 memory channels and three GPU cores. We’re likely looking at a PowerVR SGX 543MP3 running at 266MHz.

That’s a serious bit of power packed into that little chip! Of course, there would have to be some pretty remarkable tech inside in order to achieve the “twice as fast” performance that Apple promised in their announcement. The triple-core graphics work in concert with the faster dual-core processor to achieve some pretty stunning and impressive results.

Judging from the time I’ve spent with my own iPhone 5 unit, it certainly seems to have paid off, too!
