As first reported on sister site iPhoneinCanada.ca, Digitimes has news that Apple is planning a new A5 chip for the upcoming iPhone 5. What about the A4 chip? Apparently an ‘enhanced’ version of the A4 will coming to iPad 2.
Made by Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC), I would suspect performance increases would be for graphics, and overall system fluidity–similar to moving from the iPhone 3G to iPhone 3GS.
According to Digitimes Research, the iPad 2 will support an enhanced version of the A4 and the A5 will power the iPhone 5. TSMC will initially produce the improved A4, and could likely become the exclusive manufacturer of the A5.
Come on Apple, enough with the leaks, bring us iPad 2 already!
