Apple A5X CPU is dual-core and will be used in 8″ iPad

 Last days I have seen lot of rumors concerning leaked Apple chips, namely

Apple A5X ( S5L8945X) and

Apple A6 (S5L8950X)


A6 S5L8950X should be be a new, quad-core chip and is supposed to be powering iPad 3.

Details about A5 S5L8950X are still unknown, but according to model number, it is expected to be be just dual-core.

So why Apple need both chips?


  • The quad-core A6 is for the iPad 3, whilst the A5X is for rumored Apple TV update, the next-generation iPhone, or an additional iOS device
  • Apple will sell a cheaper (read 8″) iPad with the A5X thinly slice plus the higher-end A6-powered iPad 3.
  • The rumored 8″ iPad will  use A5x processor
