iPhone 5 Processor: A6 Chip, 2x faster, 2x graphics performance, less energy

As we expected, Apple’s iPhone 5 will feature A6 processor chip inside.
Tim Cook hinted at a significant shrinkage in transistor size, on top of the performance increases, the processor 22% smaller for than the A5 for more energy efficiency, while at the same time — he says — featuring 2X faster CPU and 2x graphics, when compared to the A5 processor featured in the iPhone 4S.
As result, pages load 2.1X faster than before. Keynote attachments load 1.7X faster. Devs are going to love what they can do. So we thought, let’s get a dev on this A6 chip and show what can be done.
