Apple A5 Specifications and Overview


CPU(s)

This chipset has 2x Apple Cyclone A5 CPU(s) with 1024 KB L2 cache. It belongs to the mid-level category of chipsets that can easily run most apps out there. The lower clocked CPU is used under battery saving conditions while both of them may be activated under extreme workloads such as gaming, benchmarking or multitasking but it depends on whether App will effectively use all the CPUs or not.

Number of Cores

This System on Chip has 2 cores clocked at 1.2 GHz. It can provide fairly good levels of performance with average efficiency for today's apps and multitasking. Cores of a SoC have a great impact on the performance as they determine the how the workload is distributed across the chipset as well as the maximum number of apps that can run without stuttering on the smartphone/tab etc.

Architecture

This SoC was built on the Harvard architecture.

Lithography

This SoC was built on 32nm lithography which results in average efficient performance.

Maximum Camera Support

This SoC can effectively support a 10 MP camera at max indicating that it is mostly used on mid-level mobile devices

64-bit

This processor doesn't have 64-bit support. 64-bit support allows a SoC to manage more data along its bus width and allow more quantity of RAM to be paired with the chipset. Apps also run more easily and efficiently on 64-bit processors.

GPU

This chipset has PowerVR SGX543.Graphically demanding apps may not run properly on this SoC

Phones using this Chipset

Most popular phone using this chipset is iPhone 4s.

Tablets using this Chipset

Most popular tabs using this chipset are IPad 2 and IPad Mini etc
