On the morning of May 26, some people in the industry disclosed to the media,TSMC has started production of a new generation of iPhone processor A15 chip.
In terms of production scale, the scale of A15 is larger than that of the previous generation A14. It seems that Apple predicts that the demand of iPhone 13 series will be higher than that of iPhone 12 series.
Last year, the launch of the iPhone 12 series was postponed to October due to the epidemic. However, according to the current preparation of A15, Apple's plan to launch the iPhone 13 series in September should be realized.
It is reported that the A15 processor for iPhone 13 series will be upgraded to n5p process, that is, the second generation of 5nm. The process level performance will be further increased and the power consumption will be further reduced. Compared with A14, the performance will be improved by at least 20%.
Although the details of the A15 are unknown, Apple's A-Series processors have never let people down. Only last year, the A14 was conservative in terms of power consumption and performance improvement. I hope that after the improvement of the A15 process, more potential can be released.
Data shows that A14 has as many as 11.8 billion transistors, and the CPU architecture is still two large cores + four small cores, with a 40% improvement in performance (compared with A12, the same below). Similarly, the GPU core is still 4 cores, but the performance has been improved by 30% due to the upgrade of the new architecture. In addition, AI computing power has also increased to 11.8 trillion times, and machine learning speed has increased by 70%.
