Apple A9 – the deceiver, the scoundrel and chipset

Phil Schiller said only 64-bit processor third generation, saying even less detail than before. Other traditions a new system-on-chip from Apple, despite the modest (seemingly) technical data, has not violated, being one of the most productive in the world. In the first few months are generally the most productive.

Phil told me about the processor of the third generation twice, starting with a system-on-chip for the iPad Pro. With the sales of “Apple” tablets fared even worse than the average in the industry. Apple backgrounds all was well, and their new model was even better. And for the first time, announcing both the system-on-chip, 2015, started with a version for the iPad.

Perhaps they angered an ancient Indian deity, one which was soon punishing Apple, the wrath of the gods will tell in one of the following series. Perhaps the anger was caused by something else: except A9 introduced after the A9X, the system-on-chip, there have been many other changes.

Not to gavati Indian gods, I start with the Apple A9.

According to official figures, compared to the A8 in A9 CPU performance has increased by 70%, GPU performance is 90%, the CPU had transistors new architecture, and it was all optimized for real-world problems and real life. All true.

The name of the CPU in the system-on-chip figured out before she fell into the hands of people without a subscription about nondisclosure. It was mentioned in the same plist file as before, and it was Twister. A tornado, a hurricane, a tornado, a deceiver. “The owner of factories-Palace-steamers,” which I read as a child, named Mr. Twister.

And as the ship call, so it will float.

This continuation of the series Pro processors from Apple. Previous parts:

The first part: In the shadow of the Apple A4;
Second part: the birth of the “Apple” of the processor;
Part three: Returning to the beginning of beginnings: Apple A6/A6X (Swift);
The fourth part: the Cyclone comes to replace the Swift (in the Apple A7);
Fifth part: one “NeXT” or coprocessor for fitness (Apple M7);
Sixth part: turns into Typhoon Cyclone (Apple A8);
Seventh part: the Apple S1: riddle enclosed in a mystery;
Eighth part: Apple A8X: the Graphics in the zone of special attention.

The autopsy and… deception

Twister, of course, and a hurricane, tornado, and tornado – but when a brand new iPhone 6s, mercilessly open the case SoC and cutting layer by layer from the surface of the chip, in search of the optimal angle for the spy photos with a powerful electron microscope, the researchers were misled by the geometric dimensions of the region L3.

If you read somewhere that the size of the cache in the third level in the Apple A9 8 GB, do not believe. But don’t judge authors too harshly: it was a common misconception in those days. Actually 4 GB. Moreover, now it didn’t matter, the cache played in the system-on-chip less important role, without it it could do.

Chip investigated as an artifact from a distant star, experts Chipworks have done it during working hours, for more than a good salary. If necessary, invited independent experts: the search for truth is fascinating, but difficult.

The verdict of the experts 88 level was sensational: architectural, Twister and system-on-chip from Apple was superior to Intel processors. As well as shoes or a suit tailor-made surpass analogues of mass production. Actually, for this in the Apple and created their own CPU, and meticulously customized them for yourself.

Performance Twister was a tornado-hurricane-tornado. 2-core processor tore apart the 4 – and 8-core rivals. In the first few months after the release of kicking ass. Then the arrogant upstart responded, drove to first place by a wide margin – but the rest of his active life to oust him from the first three failed.

But cheating experts, Twister forced to look at ourselves from the other side. This word has several meanings, including “deceiver.” In the Apple A9 cache size the third level of 4 Gigabytes. Guess what was the cache size in the “cargo” Apple A9X. If you know, Shhh!

Not a single autopsy

How process what technology and what company produced Apple A9 I’ll discuss in the section “Chipset: Chip and Dale rescue Rangers”. The results of a comprehensive study of the artifact, confirmed and proven, both predictable and impressive.

If Apple itself had published all of this, the results would be less white spots (not all amenable to study), but they are read by fewer people, and it would be much more boring. And some brilliant engineers group microelectronics Apple could easily be the fruits of someone else’s mistake.

Photo Apple A9:

This is one of the first photos is exactly the size of the cache level 3 was defined as 8 Gigabytes. As it turned out, the items in the cache were allocated more living space than the rest of the inhabitants of the chip. In 2015 to have been the hypothesis that if the cache was originally planned as 8 GB, but in the process of optimizing it has reduced by half.

In color and more clearly:

2 cores, very similar to core Cyclone or Typhoon. The first-level cache (each core) – size of 128K. 64K for instructions and 64K for data. The second level cache (shared for all cores) 3 MB. Three times more than the Apple A8.

Data bus width – 64 bits, bandwidth – 25.6 GB/s LPDDR4 RAM (3, 200 MHz). In A9 it 2 Gigabytes.

Interface flash memory – typical for mobile devices, PCIe and NVMe. The same as the expensive personal computers.

The clock frequency of 1.85 GHz. A lot more than the A8 (1.1 to 1.4 GHz in different devices).

Graphics processor – PowerVR GT7600 from Imagination Technologies, the seventh series of the Rogue architecture (translated as rascal, rogue, scoundrel). In the Apple A8 was used by the villain of the sixth series. In PowerVR GT7600 6 cores (in Imagination they were called clusters).

And a few words about the new architecture of transistors. If you thought that creating this new architecture, Apple had something to do, you are not right. With the technology of 20 nm and below, traditional transistors with each nanometer-down was reduced due to leaks. Someone (I think Intel, but I could be wrong) found a solution to the problem transistors new architecture called Tri-Gate (3-gate).

It was like this:

Became this:

Pictures of the Intel report, dated 2013, if not sooner. But we assume that this architecture is new. What are we, sorry?

Chipset: Chip and Dale rescue Rangers

Start at the end of the story. Apple is ignoring any questions about its system-on-chips… suddenly spoke. Answered. Imagine: you ask Apple, they say “light of my bull’s-eye, say…” – as a joke. And it is, well-modulated voice, very serious, detailed and thorough, answering.

The rest of what I will tell, compared with this event stuff.

Apple A9 was produced by two companies:

Samsung on FinFET technology to 14 nm, marking APL0898, chip area is 96 sq mm;
— TSMC, in the FinFET technology 16 nm, marking APL1022, the chip area of 104.5 sq. mm.

Of course, as is customary in fruit-producing mobile device on which these chips within purchased iPhone 6s or iPhone 6s Plus, no one reported. Even that two of them, and they are slightly different from one another, people learned from other sources.

At Apple, ran rough, and even presenting evidence. Tests, the results of which are one-to-one reproduced many times. That is, one hundred percent true?

In multiple tests chip from Samsung (APL0898) emptied the battery on 2 (two!) hours faster than the chip from TSMC (APL1022). Brand new 6s or 6s Plus, at no fault of your reasons, instead of the promised 10 hours between charges will be “live” 8 or 10 hours?

Using the program CPU Identifier Japanese iOS developer to Hiraku, checked 250 thousand 6s/6s Plus and found that 63% of them were chip from Samsung (APL0898).

During the first week of sales 6s/6s Plus sold over 13 million units, that is, the result is likely inaccurate. Apple quickly removed the program from the App Store.

That is crooks and liars? Afraid of the truth – but we derive them for clean water!

This was all discussed, dubbed “Chipata”, collected signatures for a petition, the media enthusiastically published horror. For many it was just a celebration of some kind – but then a miracle happened as described in the beginning of this topic: Apple has spoken.

Apple what the problem is, but to exaggerate its seriousness is not necessary.

Chip from Samsung consumes battery power faster. In real life 2 or 3 percent. In some tests more, some less. Independent verification confirmed: no Sipgate no.

The test was biased, the reviewer believed in Chipset, and they liked to believe it. But alas, the incident was over.

  1. Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible

    Jewish Rabbis have publicly announced that their Messiah will be revealed in the coming years who will be a leader and spiritual guide to all nations, gathering all igions under the worship of one God

    Biblical prophecy tells us that this Jewish Messiah who will take the stage will be the antichrist who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God (2 Thessalonians 2:4) For a time he will bring about a false peace, but Therefore when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place (Matthew 24:15) then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be (Matthew 24:21)

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically in Revelation 13:16-18:

    He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name

    Here is wisdom Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency This Mark couldn’t be spiritual because the word references two different physical locations If it was spiritual it would just say in the forehead RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it Revelation 13:11-18 tells us that a false prophet will arise on the world scene doing miracles before men, deceiving them to receive this Mark Do not be deceived! We must grow strong in Jesus AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name” (Revelation 14:9-11)

    People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we needed two key things One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast

    Visit WWW BIBLEFREEDOM COM to see proof for these things and why the Bible truly is the word of God!

    If you haven’t already, it is time to seek God with all your heart Jesus loves you more than you could imagine He wants to have a ationship with you and redeem you from your sins Turn to Him and repent while there is still hope! This is forever God bless!


    We all know God exists Why? Because without Him, we couldn’t prove anything at all Do we live our lives as if we cannot know anything? No So why is God necessary? In order to know anything for certain, you would have to know everything, or have revelation from somebody who does Who is capable of knowing everything? God So to know anything, you would have to be God, or know God

    A worldview without God cannot account for the uniformity and intelligibility of nature And why is it that we can even reason that God is the best explanation for this if there is no God? We are given reason to know or reject God, but never to know that He does not exist

    It has been calculated by Roger Penrose that the odds of the initial conditions for the big bang to produce the universe that we see to be a number so big, that we could put a zero on every particle in the universe, and even that would not be enough to use every zero What are the odds that God created the universe? Odds are no such thing Who of you would gamble your life on one coin flip?

    Is there evidence that the Bible is the truth? Yes Did you know that the creation accounts listed in the book of Genesis are not only all correct, but are also in the correct chronological order? That the Bible doesn’t say the Earth was formed in six 24-hour days but rather six long but finite periods of time? That the Bible makes 10 times more creation claims than all major holy books combined with no contradictions, while these other books have errors in them? The Bible stood alone by concurring with the big bang saying, In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth (Genesis 1:1); and says our universe is expanding, thousands of years before scientists discovered these things Watch a potential life-changing video on the front page of WWW BIBLEFREEDOM COM with Astronomer(PhD) Hugh Ross explaining all these facts based on published scientific data He has authored many books, backed even by atheist scientists

    Jesus came to pay a debt that we could not; to be our legal justifier to reconcile us back to a Holy God; only if we are willing to receive Him: For the wages of sin is death (Romans 6:23)

    God so loved the world that He gave us His only begotten son, so that whoever believes in Him, through faith, shall not perish, but have everlasting life Jesus says if we wish to enter into life to keep the commands! The two greatest commands are to love God with all your heart, soul, strength, and mind; and your neighbor as yourself All the law hang on these commands We must be born of and lead by the Holy Spirit, to be called children of God, to inherit the kingdom If we are willing to humble ourselves in prayer to Jesus, to confess and forsake our sins, He is willing to give the Holy Spirit to those who keep asking of Him; giving us a new heart, leading us into all truth!

    Jesus came to free us from the bondage of sin The everlasting fire was prepared for the devil and his angels due to disobedience to God’s law If we do the same, what makes us any different than the devil? Jesus says unless we repent, we shall perish For sin is the transgression of the law We must walk in the Spirit so we may not fulfill the lusts of the flesh, being hatred, fornication, drunkenness and the like Whoever practices such things will not inherit the kingdom (Galatians 5:16-26) If we sin, we may come before Jesus to ask for forgiveness (1 John 2:1-2) Evil thoughts are not sins, but rather temptations It is not until these thoughts conceive and give birth by our own desires that they become sin (James 1:12-15) When we sin, we become in the likeness of the devil’s image, for he who sins is of the devil (1 John 3:8); but if we obey Jesus, in the image of God For without holiness, we shall not see the Lord (Hebrews 12:14)

    The oldest igion in the world is holiness through faith (James 1:27) What igion did Adam and Eve follow before the fall? Jesus, Who became the last Adam, what igion does He follow? Is He not holy? He never told us to follow the rituals and traditions of man but to take up our cross and follow Him (Luke 9:23) There are many false doctrines being taught leading people astray This is why we need the Holy Spirit for discernment Unlike igion, holiness cannot be created It is given to us from above by the baptism of the Spirit Jesus is more than a igion; He is about having a personal ationship with the Father Start by reading the Gospel of Matthew, to hear the words of God, to know His character and commandments Follow and obey Jesus, for He is the way, the truth, and the life!
