Apple A9X: Nuclear physics?

It was hard to believe, but the tests (even those who usually don’t lie) prove that this time their 2-core processor, at least not inferior to the efficiency of 4 – and 8-core counterparts. What’s the catch? Who will reveal this, probably the most hidden, secret “fruit” giant? The answer to these questions was obvious, therefore, hundreds of inquiring minds vain bursting through the open door, not noticing it. What exactly did the group of microelectronics, who led her how many engineers and specialists earned on a piece of bread with butter to develop a shockingly efficient processors for mobile devices – all this and in fact was classified.

Even the head of this trend, with the rank of senior Vice President, has long been unknown. The results of their work investigated how strange artifacts from other worlds of unknown nature. On the basis of the earth and widely known architecture ARMv8-A GPU from Imagination Technologies is absolutely earthly, earthly technology. A parallel world?

Apple refused to discuss these topics, but not due to the unprecedented secrecy and mysteries of extraterrestrial nature – these topics were discussed many times. During the first Macs, when against the advice of well-wishers, the company has persistently developed and computers, and operating systems to them.

With a crushing score won the opposite approach, in the battle for the PC industry Apple was defeated and almost ceased to exist. But not changed his mind. And used the same vicious practices. And already a new well-wishers taught her how to live, it offers the same recipes for success. Steve objected to them. Tim did not notice them.

This approach: controlling all the critical elements of complex (computer or mobile device, or even smart watch), you can create masterpieces. Apple A9X, if he tried to use the device any other company would inevitably become a joke and disappointment of the year.

This is the main secret of his success, which for 30 years was not a secret. Not for a living one day (like insects), of course.

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;
Ninth part: Apple A9 – the deceiver, the scoundrel and chipsat.

The cheapest advertising campaign in the world

For the first time about the Apple A9X said on 9 September 2015. That said about the system-on-chip for tablet with monstrous magic “Pro” in its name, enough to the best part of the audience felt unbearable curiosity. How many cores, what clock speed, what the process is and everything.

But Phil was concise. Promising iPad Pro in November, and saying how much this product will cost, he moved on to the next topic.

On a large system-on-chip more not a word was said. How many minutes was presented to the audience her younger sister. In the composition of the iPhone 6s/6s Plus she had to be in the hands of maniacs (in the best sense of the word) in September.

September 25, two weeks later, Apple A9 pulled from the iPhone 6s, and stripped off his skin. And older sister cared for the public sharper than ever. In the period between 25 September and 11 November (when the first instance of Apple A9X fell into the hands of maniacs) media published about the A9X unprecedented number of stupid things.

The budget of this advertising campaign was the most circular of all: 0 cents. But on November 11 about the new tablet knew all that he might be interested and who could buy it.

An autopsy showed that…

Cores in the CPU (the same Twister as in Apple A9), it was not three (as in the A8X), and not four but two. Later evidence emerged from behind the fiery wall. The third core Apple A8X appeared due to errors in calculations and inflated expectations. Two cores failed, optimisation not helped and had to add one more. It wasn’t easy, but to create a new kernel it would be even harder.

The cache of the third level were absent in principle. According to experts, in the A9X he really wasn’t particularly necessary. 128-bit memory bus, with a bandwidth of 51.2 GB/s, without any problems connected to the CPU with the GPU, needs iPad Pro was abundantly provided. How would it worked in other systems – the big question.

Clock frequency (in iPad Pro 12.9) – 2.26 GHz.

The chip was produced by TSMC on FinFET technology 16 nm. The marking on the chip APL1021. If you read somewhere about Apple A9X manufactured by Samsung – do not believe. Most likely it was written in the period between 25 September and 11 November. Samsung the most important thing at that moment do not trust. Not because I do not believe in the skills this company is likely.

Chip area – 147 sq. mm. a Large area was only Apple A5X (165 sq mm).

The GPU was obviously from PowerVR, in his “clusters” find the series 7XT (like Apple A9), only the CPU 12 clusters the PowerVR directory was not.

Later it turned out that it is the PowerVR GT7850, developed in conjunction with Apple GPU, about which the world still finds in a few years, and exclusively for Apple. Level “for UltraBook”.

Here is a portrait of a system-on-chip stripped (layer by layer) of the skin, from Chipworks:

Memory placed outside of SoC. IPad Pro 2015 have 4 GB of LPDDR4 (3 200 MHz).

Interface with flash memory, as in the A9 – NVMe and PCIe.

And what could be a Apple M9, as in the A9, was placed on the chip. The functions of the M9 was added Siri support. And although the M9 was now part of the system-on-chip, a motion coprocessor, it continued to work even when everything else was deep asleep. That is, saving of energy everything was fine.

The verdict of the enlightened part of the audience was clear: it cannot be comparable in performance with personal computers. If Apple instead of our normal physics do not use any of the other world (a reasonable electrons, for example).

From heaven to earth: tests

Discussions about the A9X was very sharp and unpleasant. Whether A9X was comparable to Intel native chipsets for laptops, or Apple down to outright lies and nothing…

So here are the test results.

Tests for 1 core:

Tests for all cores:

Graphic tests are also impressive:

  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!
