iPhone 5: Apple A6 Processor Uses Triple-Core GPU

A6 Processor

Now that many people have access to the iPhone 5 and its A6 processor, people have been taking things apart and finding out about the various components.

The A6 is much faster than past processors in Apple’s iOS devices. This is partly because the chip is not based on the previous ARM CPUs. The graphics processor unit (GPU) has three cores and higher clock speeds than the A5. This gives it twice the graphics power of the previous processor.
