Apple A9X Specifications and Overview


This chipset has 2 Twister CPU(s) with 3072 KB L2 cache. It belongs to the flagship 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 2.26 GHz. It can provide extremely high levels of performance with maximum 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.


This SoC was built on Harvard/ARMv8 architecture.


This SoC was built on 16nm lithography which results in extremely efficient performance.

Maximum Camera Support

This SoC can effectively support a 25 MP camera at max indicating that it is mostly used on high-level mobile devices


This processor has 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.


This chipset has PowerVR Series 7XT with 500 MHz core clock speed and 12 cores. It has Metal API(s) running on it resulting in reduced overheads and extremely smooth graphical performance within games and movies. Graphically demanding apps will run smoothly on this SoC.

Tablets using this Chipset

Most popular tabs using this chipset are IPad Pro.
